According to today’s edition of ‘Il Messaggero’ Inter and Atletico Madrid target Hernanes is not only proving difficult to obtain but shortly could become mission impossible as rumours of a contract renewal grow stronger. The demands of Lazio (€20 million) were already prohibitive but now a contract is being proposed that would not only increase the pay of the Brazilian international but also insert a buy out clause of between €30 and €40 million. This figure would surely end the interest of both clubs who have tried everything to pry away Lazio’s prime asset.
