Hernanes admits talks over new Lazio contract but insists there is no rush to agree a renewal
Hernanes has confirmed there has been talks with Lazio to renew his contract.
The Brazil international’s current deal expires in 2015 and there has been speculation that he may he be sold if a new deal cannot be agreed.
Hernanes admits discussions are at an early stage and that he is more concerned with giving his best on the pitch, than securing a quick renewal.
“We have spoken,” he told Sky Sport Italia, as reported by Football Italia. “There has been a first meeting, but I am calm. I don’t want to rush things.
“I just want to show what I can do on the pitch.”
Hernanes, 28, joined Lazio from São Paulo for €11.1 million in August 2010. This season he’s made 20 appearances, scoring three goals.
