Lazio Face Late Threat From Milan in Rovella-Pellegrini Deal

Lazio are closing out a deal for Juventus duo Nicolo Rovella and Luca Pellegrini, but now Milan have emerged to complicate matters.

The Biancocelesti have reached a total agreement with the Bianconeri for the Italian pair, agreeing to sign both on loan deals with buy options attached, a deal costing around €27 million total between the various expenses.

Maurizio Sarri has wanted a new midfielder and left back for weeks and the pair’s arrival will add a key boost to his Lazio squad just a week before their first game of the 2023-24 season.

As reported by Corriere dello Sport (via LazioNews24), Lazio and Juventus exchanged documents for the Rovella-Pellegrini deal yesterday and things are expected to be completed in the coming hours, but in the background Milan have emerged to pose a threat.

The Rossoneri have had their eye on Pellegrini for a while now and have now started to consider a late lunge for Rovella, but their interest may have come too late as the Biancocelesti push to get things across the line.

  1. No chance. At least that’s what I like to believe. Why? Pellegrini will keep refusing to join any other team than Lazio and Rovella won’t be played in Milan much, especially when Bennacer comes back mot to mention the asking price for a single deal would be likely higher(not saying Milan don’t have the money but I do believe Juve would rather sell us then a Milan who they might see as a bigger threat). Don’t forget it is a wrapped up deal with Lotito whereas who knows what issues could accour with Cardinale and if they end up with both on the rooster will be a massive hit to them. Rovella himself is a smart lad and definitely craves to play. Add to it that it is indeed so late that if true that documents were exchanged yesterday and in the coming hours should be the signing… it’s a done deal.

    Ps: Serie A starts in less then a weak, you think Allegri wants to complicate/risk instead of pushing this through quick so he can bring in at least one more man? He definitely doesn’t see them play a big part for Juve so this is a no brainer. Giuntoli is smart too so everyone stay calm, these are our players.
