Michaël Ciani (born 6 April 1984) is a French international footballer who plays professionally for Lazio as a central defender.

Club career[edit]

His performances during the 2008–09 season led to increased speculation that Ciani would sign with another club with the player preferring a move to the Premier League over Ligue 1 contenders Bordeaux and Paris Saint-Germain.[1]

On 28 July 2009, Ciani and Bordeaux reached an agreement on a four-year contract with the Aquitaine-based club paying Lorient €4 million for his services. The defender was recruited by Laurent Blanc as a replacement for the departed Souleymane Diawara who joined Marseille.[2]

International career[edit]

Ciani made his international debut for France in 2010.[3]
