According to Radiosei – an Italian radio station reporting on Lazio – the Biancocelesti are ready to offer Adam Marušić a contract extension.
As it stands, the Montenegrin’s current contract expires in the summer of 2022; the club have offered the wing-back a three-year extension – that will expire 2025 – in which he will make approximately €1 million a year.
Currently 27 years of age, Marušić was signed by Lazio in the summer of 2017 from Belgian first division side KV Oostende for just €5.5 million. Since then, he has made 83 total appearances for the Biancocelesti, scoring seven goals and providing six assists.
Although his first season was a massive success in Rome, the same could not be said about his second year (2018/19 season) by which it seemed that something was wrong with the player. This was further confirmed by the fact that Marušić was struggling – and continued to struggle – with several injuries (hip, abductor, thigh) throughout the season, and ahead of the 2019/20 season.
However, since returning, the player has played excellently for Simone Inzaghi and Lazio; as a result, in March and April of 2020, several reports were made that stated that Paris Saint-Germain had taken an interest in potentially signing the Montenegrin in the summer of 2020.
Despite Manuel Lazzari being signed in the summer of 2019 – and consequentially taking over Marušić’s starting position – the 27-year-old seems keen on continuing his journey with the Biancocelesti, and the club seem interested in keeping him in Italy; the signing of this contract extension would further prove this, leaving PSG to look elsewhere for a right wing-back.
