The saga surrounding Luis Alberto continues to rage on as the player has been fined for trying to force a move, according to a report.
Calciomercato.com are writing that Luis Alberto did not show up for Lazio’s preseason meeting because he would like to change clubs during the current transfer window. This did not go down well with the leaders of the capital club, who have fined him and ordered him to return to Italy immediately.
Meanwhile, there are rumours circulating in Spain suggesting that there is interest rom Atletico Madrid – the report adds – but Lazio president Claudio Lotito will not drop below the €60m asking price he has set for the Spaniard.
Simone Inzaghi would have gladly taken him to Inter, but the costs are high for the Nerazzurri who instead decided to gamble on the free transfer of Hakan Calhanoglu. Meanwhile, Milan could think about a swoop for the 28-year-old to replace Calhanoglu.

€60M for a guy that goes AWOL to force a move of spend the €60M on Vhalovic or maybe €35 on Damsgaard and €25 on Belotti to solve two problems?
Yeah, not worth it to me.
