The Details of Luis Alberto Renewing His Lazio Contract

Lazio announced on Monday that Luis Alberto would stick around for a while thanks to a contract extension. The new agreement prolonged his contract from 2025 to 2027, giving him a healthy pay bump. The parties shook hands during the summer but didn’t put pen to paper.

According to Calciomercato, the Spaniard will start earning €4M and be the second-highest-paid player on the squad behind Ciro Immobile. He was restless and angled for a return to his country in previous windows, but that wasn’t the case last summer. He was linked to Sevilla and Cadiz in the past. The playmaker recently confirmed that he asked to go out on loan last January because he wasn’t playing consistently enough, but then he cleared with the coach and stayed put.

Luis Alberto joined Lazio on a €4M move from Liverpool back in 2016. He has appeared in 271 matches since, recording 49 goals and 70 assists in the process. He’ll be tied to the Biancocelesti until he’s 35.

The inventive playmaker contributed to winning the Coppa Italia in 2019 and two Supercoppe Italiane in 2018 and 2020. He has been chronically snubbed by his national team, making just cap.

Our Take on Luis Alberto and Lazio

The capital side can use all the good PR they can get given their awful start, and announcing a renewal is an easy win. It was due.
