Luis Alberto’s shock announcement he wants his contract terminated sparks a revolution at Lazio, where Ciro Immobile, Felipe Anderson and Mattia Zaccagni are also ready to walk away.

The Biancocelesti finished second in Serie A last season and were eliminated from the Champions League at the Round of 16 stage by Bayern Munich.

They are also in the semi-final of the Coppa Italia, having lost the first leg 2-0 to Juventus, but suffered a heavy defeat to Inter in the semi-final of the Supercoppa Italiana in January.

Luis Alberto bombshell

Following the 4-1 win over Salernitana on Friday evening, Luis Alberto told DAZN on live television that he had already asked the club to terminate his contract at the end of the season.

His current deal runs to June 2027, but he seems to have made his decision.

There are few doubts over what he wants, which is a return to Spain and specifically to his beloved Sevilla, having already come close recently only for Lazio’s asking price to prove too high.

This is probably why he is asking for a termination by mutual consent, hoping Lazio will accept the wages saved and let him go for free.

Luis Alberto is not the only one leaving the Stadio Olimpico, as Felipe Anderson’s contract expires on June 30 and negotiations for a new deal have hit a brick wall, especially with Juventus ready to welcome him with open arms.

The Zaccagni situation is different, as his contract runs to June 2025, but in order to avoid losing him as a free agent, Lazio will probably negotiate a sale this summer.

End of Immobile era

As for captain Immobile, he confessed to regretting the decision to turn down a move to Saudi Arabia last year, especially after the fans turned on him and were extremely critical of his performances.

Under contract until June 2026, the 34-year-old and Lazio are unlikely to turn down another offer if it comes in, even if it’s from Serie A leaders Inter.
