Luis Alberto fuelled the speculation of a rupture between him and coach Maurizio Sarri and his relationship with Lazio seems to be at the breaking point, but the Aquile want €50m to let him leave.

The 29-year-old, capped once by Spain, has contributed four assists and one goal in the first eight Serie A games this term and wore the captain’s armband when Ciro Immobile was absent.

Luis Alberto arrived from Liverpool in August 2016 and has reportedly been pushing for a move away from the club in recent months, showing up late for pre-season training.

His contract expires in June 2025 and Lazio are asking for a high amount to let him leave the Olimpico, where Luis Alberto has always had an intense relationship with the fans.

Calciomercato.com highlights the changes in recent months as his agent is evaluating the possibilities in the transfer market in January.

The report claims former Lazio coach Simone Inzaghi wants the midfielder at Inter, while Milan have been mentioned as possible suitors.

But the price tag is set at €50m by President Claudio Lotito and the rivals in Serie A are not willing to match those demands.

Il Messaggero reports the players at Lazio are behind Sarri, but the coach’s comments regarding Sergej Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto had the Spanish star fuming.

Luis Alberto liked a comment against the coach on social media and fuelled the rumours regarding a rupture in the relationship between him and the former Napoli tactician.

“At this moment, Milinkovic-Savic and Luis Alberto cannot play together,” Sarri said after the 0-0 match against Olympique Marseille on Thursday.

The post he liked on social media was criticising Sarri’s words, claiming the best players should always play together and ‘otherwise, you are not a great coach’.

    Media speculativo.

    Guys, Luis Alberto will play when called while he is wearing the Lazio shirt. Sarri is right that the two in his formation at the moment don’t fit. Key words “at the moment”.

    He nunerously and precisely said he likes L Alberto so considering Sarriball takes time wouldn’t you agree 8 games isn’t much ? Let the Lazio fans and Lazio board decide this and I haven’t heard or seen no messages from any of them so it is all soeculation. Players nowadays are as Free as a bird to do, share and like whatever they wish on social media.
