Insight: Luis Alberto Dreams of Cadiz as Lazio Tensions Brew

Luis Alberto dreams of returning to Spain, possibly at Cadiz, but first things will need to be resolved with Lazio, The Laziali understand.

The 31-year-old Spanish midfielder sparked controversy following the Biancocelesti’s 4-1 win over Salernitana last week, when he publicly stated his plans to leave the club on a free transfer in the summer, something that hadn’t been discussed with the management.

The statements immediately sparked drama, with Lazio president Claudio Lotito making it clear that Luis Alberto wouldn’t be allowed to leave for free. Sporting director Angelo Fabiani also highlighted how he pushed for a new deal to 2027 last year, which must be respected.

Transfer market expert Matteo Moretto provided an update on the Luis Alberto situation at Lazio via Fabrizio Romano’s Daily Briefing.

The 31-year-old has long dreamed of returning to Spain one day, with Cadiz at the top of his wish list, but first his situation at the Biancocelesti will need to be resolved.

In recent weeks, it was made clear to the midfielder that he wouldn’t be an essential part of Igor Tudor’s new project and that everything would be discussed in the summer, possibly explaining why he spoke out last week. If he wants to leave, he’d have to drop his €4m net per season salary.
