Luis Alberto No Longer Likely to Leave Lazio This Summer: The Situation

Lazio star Luis Alberto is not likely to leave the club this summer after mending his relationship with the management.

As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 28-year-old Spaniard spoke to sporting director Igli Tare on the phone after arriving at the training camp in Auronzo di Cadore, clarifying the situation after his late arrival to the pre-season retreat.

The Spanish midfielder would like to leave Lazio but the Roman club want around €50-60 million, a fee that will be all but impossible to match this summer in the post-Covid transfer market, even if rumours from Spain suggest that Atletico Madrid and Villarreal are keen.

The former Liverpool man will now remain fully focused on Lazio and working with coach Maurizio Sarri, who wants to make the Spaniard a key part of his squad next season.
