Although Luka Romero is one of the brightest talents at Lazio, he may still leave on a free transfer in the summer after his contract renewal talks hit a serious roadblock.
The Biancocelesti have been negotiating with the Spanish teenager’s entourage for a number of weeks now, confident that the talented forward would pen a new deal lasting until 2026. Things were looking good and it became clear that Luka Romero wanted to stay in Rome, helping speed along talks.
In recent weeks, however, things have fallen quiet and doubts are starting to emerge, something that was brought to the forefront following a recent meeting between Claudio Lotito and Igli Tare.
As detailed by Il Messaggero (via LazioNews24), Luka Romero has agreed to sign a new three-year contract with Lazio, but pen hasn’t been put to paper due to the high agent commissions.
The Spaniard’s entourage want a €5m signing bonus, something Lotito has no intention of paying. He met with Tare on Tuesday afternoon, telling him to resolve the situation or the talented teenager would be leaving on a free transfer in the summer.
Fali Ramadani, Luka Romero’s agent, was in Formello yesterday to discuss the deal but no agreement was found, and things are starting to look increasingly tense.
