Jovane Cabral’s loan at Lazio could become a permanent move due to a clause in his contract.
As reported by Portuguese media outlet A Bola (via La Lazio Siamo Noi) yesterday, the 23-year-old Cape Verdean winger joined the Biancocelesti on transfer deadline day on a €1 million loan move with an €8 million buy option attached, being the only real signing of the January transfer window.
That buy option can become an obligation to buy clause should Jovane make 10 appearances for Lazio, although he’ll also have to play at least 45 minutes per game in those 10 matches in order for the clause to be activated.
Whilst this is a somewhat complex formula, it’s not unfeasible and now it’s up to the player to prove to coach Maurizio Sarri that he has what it takes to shine in the Italian topflight. Should the obligation to buy clause be activated, he will remain with Lazio for five years, following the agreements made.
