Luca Pessina of La Gazzetta dello Sport is reporting that Lazio midfielder Cristian Ledesma has received offers from the New York Red Bulls and the Montreal Impact.

THE STATES - A solution that would still be far from Italy, despite the timid surveys from Fiorentina and Bologna in recent weeks. The class of '82 Buenos Aires is the fact fallen Mls.

THE PREMIER - The Montreal Impact, where he played the old knowledge biancoceleste Alessandro Nesta, has taken the first steps with the player, but the entourage of Ledesma came the call from the New York Red Bulls. The window remains the track leading to the Premier. The Southampton has indeed feelers for June so convinced. Ledesma is to greet the Lazio then after 9 years, and probably even Italy. The future speaks English, the United States and England expect.

Isn't Google Translate fun?

Ledesma is a dual citizen of Argentina and Italy who has one cap for the Italian national team. The central midfielder has made 282 appearances for Lazio including 7 starts this season. Lazio is currently 6th in Serie A.

How Ledesma fits into Ali Curtis' plan, whether the team needs another central midfielder, and if Ledesma is merely using MLS to raise his asking price remains to be seen.

Do you want Ledesma to join the Red Bulls?
