Luis Suarez has been offered to Lazio by his entourage as he looks to find a new home ahead of his contract expiry with Atletico Madrid.
The 35-year-old Uruguayan forward had a decent season in Spain under Diego Simeone, netting 11 goals and providing three assists in 35 La Liga appearances. His contract will expire with Atletico later this month and he’s now looking around for a new club, keen to stay in Europe.
As reported by TuttoMercatoWeb, Lazio are now thinking about picking up Luis Suarez after the approach from his agents. The idea is exciting, but the Roman club will have to wrestle with the €6m net per season salary earned by the Uruguayan in Madrid.
The former Liverpool and Barcelona man would have to drop his wages if he wanted to join Maurizio Sarri’s side, even if the Growth Decree would help, assuming he signed a multi-year contract.
Another slight issue is that Suarez is a non-EU player and Lazio currently don’t have room for him in the squad – their two slots are currently filled by Dimitrije Kamenovic and Felipe Anderson, and the club are working on signing Shakhtar Donetsk’s Marcos Antonio at the minute, adding a third non-EU player to the squad.
