“David Silva-Lazio, the announcement is a matter of hours”, so that headline in the Courier of Rome in cutting the top of the first page. Without the Champions League out of the way, would have been the right week. The closure of the negotiation between David Silva and Lazio, with the spaniard ready to appear for the first time in Italy and take the embrace of the fans that has been made the gift to the Champions. Instead, no, for that we have to wait a few days, because Manchester City has eliminated Real Madrid in the first knockout round and qualified for the Final Eight Portuguese Champions. Silva, last Friday, came in the last minutes of the match against Real, playing for the last time at the Etihad with the jersey of the Citizens, and will depart with the team of Guardiola to Lisbon. The signature could arrive already in these days, with the exchange of documents would be in electronic form. Lotito, before enjoying a few days of vacation between the sea and Cortina, would like to close the transaction.
