  28/04/2011: Operation River Carrizo

After Carrizo declared that he would like to stay in Argentina, and hinted many times at lack of action from club president Passarella, it seems now that the president nicknamed (Kaiser) will take action and settle the issue with Lazio once and for all.

Carrizo has been resurrected at River, and after losing his position in the national team when he moved to Lazio and flopped, he is now back to guard the albiceleste's goal and is expected to represent Argentina at Copa America.

Lazio are willing to sell the player who is now on loan at River, and it is reported that the biancoceleste's asking price is 6 million euros, a figure that River are not willing to match due to weak club finances. 

However Passarella is adamant that Carrizo will stay: "It all depends on Lazio, we want the player and the player wants to stay. But we need to reach an agreement on the numbers, currently the gap is high".

Passarella is travelling to Zurich next month for a FIFA conference, and will be meeting Lotito in Rome to settle the issue. It is believed that including some players from River to Lazio might sweeten the deal, but the issue would be on "which players".

Lazio seem to be interested in Lamela, but Passarella issued a hands off warning at least as part of this deal by saying that his price is very high.

Reports suggest now that Lazio would settle for Adriano Cirigliano the 19 year old midfielder with an EU passport.
