The Corriere dello Sport open today with Lazio's move for Xandao. The Brazilian company that own the player's rights are asking for 3 million Euros while Lotito opened with 2.5 m. The problem however are that Sporting Lisbon are insisting they still have the right of an option on the player and are demanding 600k from Lazio to allow them to sign him.

They also specaulate that while Petkovic is trying to find the 'true' Lazio, he may well be ready to try a 4-2-3-1 formation spearheaded by Klose or Zarate with Candreva, Ederson and Lulic behind. The alternatives being Gonzalez, Hernanes and Mauri behind the sole striker.

Il Corriere della Sera talk about how Lazio will face Burak Yilmaz, the man they almost signed, in a friendly against Galatasaray in August. Also they highlight Milan and Barcelona's interest in il Profeta, Hernanes.

La Gazzetta dello Sport report about the accusations against Claudio Lotito from a Abruzzan tobacconist. He claims that Lotito was involved in fixing the game between Lazio and Albino Leffe in the Coppa Italia in 2010. Lotito is believed to be preparing a lawsuit against the tobacconist.
