Europe's Elite Eye Pandev

Goran Pandev is wanted by the majority of the best clubs in Europe and could wait for a season before leaving Lazio on a free transfer, according to his agent.

The Macedonian striker's vociferous representative, Carlo Pallavicino, has announced that the 25-year-old would and then would not be penning a new deal with the Rome-based outfit.

Now he has heaped pressure on the club to offer a new, better deal by claiming that most of the club's in the Champions League quarter-finals made enquiries about his availability - which means at least two Premier League clubs are in the chase.

Reports suggest that Pandev is on around £500,000-per-year, but wants to triple that at least, but Lazio's president Claudio Lotito has insisted that the club will not be forced into selling him.

With Juventus being strongly linked, Barcelona and Real Madrid are also said to be interested, but Pallavicino believes that the level of interest is much higher.

"Pandev is the object of desire for half of Europe," he told Radio Kiss Kiss.

"With his contract expiring in 2010 and the possibility of using the Article 17 law, it is normal that a player is very hungry.

"I say only that, of the teams who participated in the quarter-finals of the Champions League, six out of eight of them want to sign him."


Not World Class but would be available for cheap. Hard, quite
quite consistent worker with good technique. He's not the goalscorer
we're looking for, I know, but with Tevez's departure imminent
I think he could be a decent buy.

I think he should stay at Lazio. Or at the very least move to another Serie A team. He's got something good going.

Great partnership with Zarate.
Zàrate may leave aswell. The €500k a year wage cap
is respectable but when you're a footballer it's not that

When someone like Rio Ferdinand refuses to sign a new
contract unless he gets a wage rise Lazio tell their players
to leave. I remember an interview with Claudio Lotito, the
Lazio President, he said "If you want to play for Lazio you
do so because you want to play for the club, not for the
money". I think it's something all clubs should admire. Not
allowing themselves to be bullied into giving Pandev a wage
rise may well see them lose their most valued player, along
with Zàrate, but they'll keep their principles intact which is
not little in this day and age.
