Luis Alberto has reportedly signed his new long-term contract with Lazio after months of negotiations.
The Spanish midfielder has long since agreed to the terms of a deal with Biancocelesti president Claudio Lotito but the deal wasn’t completed due to a minor feud between the parties regarding a €100,000 bonus.
The situation saw Luis Alberto miss multiple training sessions as well as the pre-season friendly against Aston Villa, but he ultimately apologised and was reintegrated into Maurizio Sarri’s squad.
Calciomercato.com details how Luis Alberto has now signed a new five-year contract with Lazio, tying him to the club until June 2028, with a salary of around €4 million net per season plus add-ons.
The 30-year-old has played the full 90 minutes of Lazio’s first two Serie A outings against Lecce and Genoa, providing an assist against the former. He is a key part of Sarri’s squad, especially since the recent sale of Sergej Milinkovic-Savic to Al-Hilal last month.
