Ledesma and Gargano staying put
Cristian Ledesma and Walter Gargano's agent insist the players will remain with Lazio and Napoli respectively next season.
Premier League champions Manchester City have recently been linked with a swoop for Ledesma, but agent Vincenzo D'Ippolito made it clear that the Argentinian-born star is very keen to remain in Rome. "City boss Roberto Mancini likes Ledesma, but he'll stay at Lazio," he said. "It's the same story every year, but Cristian has made a life decision and he wants to stay in Rome. I think he'll end his career with Lazio." And it looks as though Gargano will be in Naples next term, with D'Ippolito adding: "The decision to keep Mazzarri means that it is now very unlikely that Gargano could move on. He's vital for the Azzurri. I'm 99.9 per cent sure that he'll remain."
