Oddo close to AC Milan


Massimo Oddo has confirmed that a January move to Milan is very much on the cards for the Lazio captain.

“There’s no point hiding from the fact,” he told local Lazio-based radio programme ‘La Voce della Nord.’

“There is an important offer from Milan on the table and therefore my future at Lazio is in doubt. In any case, we need to find the best solution for everyone.”

The Rossoneri have been interested in the right-back, who they see as the heir to Marcos Cafu, for several years.

Following his part in the 2006 World Cup victory, Biancocelesti patron Claudio Lotito slapped an £8m price-tag on the 30-year-old and talks stalled, but hopes of a January agreement are still high as far as he is concerned.

“Obviously, I’d like for Lazio to also be satisfied with an eventual deal, so the decision won’t just be a personal one from me.”

It’s believed Milan have offered £4m cash plus the services of talented youngster Pasquale Foggia.

Oddo started his career in the Rossoneri youth system and has been at Lazio since 2002, where he joined from Hellas Verona.
