Despite taking his medicals at the Paideia Clinic in Rome on September 16, 2020, Mohamed Fares is yet to be announced as a Lazio player. While several rumours have been spread since then as to why this delay has occurred, the truth has finally been revealed.

According to Radiosei, there were issues between the club and the left wing-back (with regard to bonuses and payment methods) which halted his transfer to Rome. However, after a phone call today between Biancocelesti President Claudio Lotito and his Agent (Mino Raiola), everything has been resolved.

The Spal and Algeria international will join the Biancocelesti for a fee of €8 million, in addition to a possible €1 million in bonuses. He will sign a five-year contract worth €1.5 million (including bonuses) per season with Lazio.
