Sarri Quips About Lazio Signing Haaland and De Bruyne

Lazio beat Cremonese 3-2 at the Stadio Olimpico in their final home game of the season, thus now look likelier than ever to finish second behind Scudetto winners Napoli. Lazio will make a return to the UEFA Champions League next season, and coach Maurizio Sarri joked about the potential signings his team can make in the summer.

Sarri spoke in the post-match press conference (via LazioNews24) after the win against Cremonese, and revealed his future plans.

“We hear the ideas and if we are all with the same as last year, we move forward quietly. I have no intention of leaving Lazio, but neither do I intend to do things that no longer suit me. This eventuality is extremely remote at the moment, I know we won’t go crazy but this is part of Lazio’s history.”

Sarri then wisecracked about Lazio’s plans in the transfer market.

“If Lotito listened to me, one or two billion would be spent. The first assault De Bruyne then Haaland. The first step is to be sure who stays, if you don’t do this to follow the market you risk bying useless players to the whole cause. We are certain some areas are short or strong but lacking in some characteristics.”

Lazio are expected to make a few big signings as Sarri and president Claudio Lotito prepare to compete in the Champions League next season.
