Speaking Gazzetta dello sport, Lazio Sports Director Igle Tare discussed the difficulties facing clubs to negotiate for the purchase of South American players, as the rights for those players are owned by many parties. European clubs find themselves negotiating with agents, investment groups, families of the players, and presidents of the clubs. Tare also spoke about his experience in bringing Hernanes from Sao Paulo to Lazio.

With Hernanes, the rights of the player were divided between Sao Paolo (75 %) and two other private entities (25 %), and things become difficult when those owner don't even agree with each other.

"For the negotations to succeed, you need to keep a low profile. With so many people involved in those deals, the moment they know about an interest, the moment the price sky rockets." said Tare.

Speaking on the case of Hernanes, Tare said: "With Hernanes it was tricky, because we had to negotiate Sao Paolo and the other parties separately ! What settled the deal in the end was the fact that Hernanes wanted to play with Lazio at all costs."
