Hernanes is edging closer to the Capital!
The Vice-President of Sao Paolo has revealed to the Brazilian Press that the deal is as good as done. What lacking is only the official announcement. I think the reason is because the club do not want the player(s) to be distracted or affected.
Sao Paolo have a Final of the Coppa Liberatores to play for this thursday, and have to overcome a 1-0 1st leg deficit. Most probably the official annoucement will be made after the Final in Mid-August. (If Sao Paolo made it to the Final)
Another news that has grab the headlines is us linking to Kevin Prince Boateng. The latter has already rejected us but for some apparent reason, rumors said that we are also close to getting him. Hmm..he is a strong and physical player who is very attacking minded. Im not sure if he will suit Reja's system. Neverthelss, it would really be a dream if he comes to Rome. Can you imagine the midfield consisiting of Ledesma, Boateng, Hernanes and Bresciano??

An article on Lazialita says that the Brazilian midfielder is 99% a Lazio player and he is just a signature away from becoming 1 of us. Federico Penha, the vice-president of 'Traffic' who owns 17% of the player's rights has confirmed that.
In Brazil, it is very common for players to be own by several 'companies'.
Alot of my friends are delighted about this piece of news though nothing official has been announced. Youtube videos of the player can be seen everywhere on Facebook and some even hailing Claudio Lotito. *Shrugs*
For me, i hope the rumors are true of course. But i will not believe anything until i see him in the press conference, in a Lazio jersey at Formello.
Garrido is basically a replacement for Kolarov on the left side of defence and cost 2.5 Millions. I have never seen him play in my entire life, so i will reserve my comments on the latter till later stage of the season.
As for Gonzalez, the player has actually been with us for acouple of weeks. It's just that there was no official announcement by the society. He has played afew friendly matches for us in Auronzo and has impressed many. Gonzalez can be used as a winger and right side of midfield.
Welcome to La Lazio boys!!
