Reports: Milan interested in unhappy Lazio star Luis Alberto but two obstacles exist

By Oliver Fisher -

Luis Alberto is once again facing an uncertain future at Lazio as they have become frustrated with his attitude, according to a report.

Il Corriere dello Sport recalls how Maurizio Sarri has claimed only one between Alberto and Sergej Milinkovic-Savic can play in midfield, and the former liked a social media post which criticised the head coach. Alberto and Sarri reportedly had an argument during the October break, leading to the real possibility that he leaves.

MilanLive writes how the 4-3-3 system that Maurizio Sarri is using at Lazio does not lend itself to Alberto having a constant starting role and he is becoming frustrated, which is why the Spaniard is ‘getting closer and closer to a farewell’.

He has his ‘suitcases ready’ just as he did in July, but this time not even Claudio Lotito’s resistance will make him change his mind. Alberto could therefore be sold in the 2022 winter transfer window but an asking price of at least €40m is expected.

Milan ‘could be very intrigued’ by the idea of signing the former Liverpool man but there are two issues: paying his asking price and the competition from some of the top sides in LaLiga , where he has several admirers.

    Seems like there would be other obstacles to add to that as milan isnt gonna pay 40-50 mil euros for a 29 year old player as it will be guaranteed cash down the drain.

      And, also, if the rumors are true, the arrival of Isco will close the door to Alberto. Can’t see the club having Brahim, paying what will surely be a relatively high wage for Isco AND paying for Alberto AND his relatively high wages.

      1. Martin Bernhard says:

        Alberto also plays cm but yeah i agree and assuming isco were to join us i would also agree it would make it even less likely to happen.

    I think we should get Isco, he will add more winning to the team.
