Lazio Owned Talent Reflects on Interest From Chelsea & Inter

Raul Moro explained the reason why he joined Ternana on loan, his experiences at Lazio and the clubs interested in him before he made the move to Rome.

The 19-year-old Spanish forward joined the Serie B outfit on loan in the summer, keen to find regular playing time after a couple of seasons stuck on the bench at the Biancocelesti. Contracted to Lazio until 2025, Moro is a highly touted youngster who is finally making an impact in first team football.

Speaking to, Moro first explained why he decided to join Ternana on loan this summer.

I wanted to stay in Italy to stay on Lazio’s radar, here I am close to Rome and Ternana’s 4-3-3 is perfect for my characteristics.

He confirmed that he still keeps a close eye on Lazio.

Of course, I watch them all the time. In Rome there’s my sister who studies at the Foro Italico University, when I go to visit her I also manage to go to the stadium.

The Spanish teenager reflected on his Serie A debut against Juventus in July 2020.

The debut at the first call-up, at 17 years old, I couldn’t believe it. I had started the season with the Primavera team, then the leagues stopped because of COVID and it was difficult for me to train in a small flat.

He reflected on his limited opportunities at Lazio.

Maybe I was a bit unlucky because in the few minutes I played I could have scored two or three goals, you never know what would have happened if I had scored. But I prefer not to think about that. If I’m not mistaken with Lazio I played a total of 360 minutes.

Finally, Raul Moro spoke about some of the other clubs interested in him back in 2019 before he joined Lazio in a deal worth around €6 million.

After my last season in Spain I had many requests. I know that several clubs came to see me, including Chelsea and Inter, but when they knew the price they backed out. Lazio spent €6 million to bring me to Italy, at that time I didn’t even know my market value.
