Lazio Officials Downplay Luis Alberto Transfer Rumours

Luis Alberto continues to be linked with a move to Spain, with Cadiz being the latest team trying to sign him, but Lazio have clear ideas about his future.

President Claudio Lotito commented to Il Messaggero.

“I have no intention of loaning him, not even with an option to buy.”

Director Igli Tare elaborated to Sky Sport before the Lecce game (via Corriere dello Sport).

“I don’t understand why there’s always a fuss around him. He’s under contract until 2025. He’s described as a troublemaker every six months. In reality, he returned after the break with great motivation. Unfortunately, he picked up an injury and didn’t manage to recover for this match. He remains a key player for us. There has never been, and there will never be a Luis Alberto case.”

Coach Maurizio Sarri dished on the inventive playmaker in the pre-game presser.

“I read that he wants to leave because he’s at odds with the coach. When I came here in July 2021, and he wasn’t with us in the summer retreat because he wanted to depart. I didn’t create this situation, I inherited it. His desire to return to Spain can be understandable, but he has always stayed and provided his contribution.”

Cadiz president Manuel Vizcaino talked to a local radio.

“Luis Alberto would like to join us, and that’s a source of pride for our club. He would be very useful to us given his experience. We all know his potential, but the deal is impossible at the moment.”
