Luis Alberto’s future at Lazio appears to be fraught with uncertainty and tension. Although everything seemed settled a few days ago, the Spanish midfielder has once again sparked rumors of dissatisfaction and his contract extension with the Italian club is yet to be signed.
On July 26, Luis Alberto did not show up for training with his teammates after posting an enigmatic message on social media, referring to his patience and raising suspicions about his situation. Although technician Sarri tried to approximate the positions and close the case with an upcoming extension, the situation seems to have gotten complicated again.
According to the newspaperCorriere dello Sport‘, the player is still furious over a price of 140,000 euros that President Lotito allegedly failed to pay him. Although the club believe that this is irrelevant compared to the renewal proposal, which calls for a salary of more than €4m net plus variables, Luis Alberto has yet to sign the new deal.
President Claudio Lotito is causing controversy over alleged threats and penalties against the Spanish player. The manager Fabiani has tried to calm the situation but has not yet been able to bring peace between the two parties.
Much controversy this summer in Rome
Lazio are in a delicate phase as they have also had to deny rumors of tensions between coach Sarri and president Lotito and announced legal action against those responsible for spreading false information. In addition, the transfer market for the club has not lost despite the return to the Champions League.
While the team is in England for a friendly against Aston Villa, Luis Alberto remains in touch with the club. The situation remains unresolved, causing concern among fans and the Italian press.
