Decisive days for Luiz Felipe as Lazio work to tie the player down to a new contract.
As reported by Italian newspaper Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24) earlier today, the 24-year-old Brazilian defender’s current contract expires in June and he is now able to sign a pre-contract with a new club, meaning the Biancocelesti need to work fast if they want to secure their centre back.
Luiz Felipe is waiting for Lazio’s contract offer, which could arrive by 10th January. The distance between the two parties now is €500,000, with the club offering €2 million net per season and the Brazilian asking for €2.5 million net per season.
Luiz Felipe has made 22 appearances across all competitions so far this season, for a total of 1944 minutes. In that time, he has picked up seven yellow cards and helped the side keep five clean sheets.
