Lazio’s attempts to sign Felipe Anderson are held up by third-party investors, who his agent today called “bandits.”
The Biancocelesti have agreed a fee with Santos and the 20-year-old, but the transfer is stalling due to the problems negotiating with an English investment company that owns part of his contract.
“After this week I will be at FIFA’s side in a bid to abolish third-party investors,” wrote agent Stefano Castagna on Twitter.
“They are bandits. Football is something else entirely. The lad won’t give up, as he 100 per cent wants Lazio, but we have to battle bandits... We’ll manage it, calmly.”
