Forty-one years. A lot has passed since the last direct exchange of a player from Lazio to Rome (Perrone in 1981) while the last passage of the Tiber took place last summer with Pedro. Now history could repeat itself. In the last few days, in fact, it is interest in Trigoria for Luiz Felipe blossomed. The Brazilian defender his contract with Lazio is about to expire and the renewal treaties are going through a complicated moment despite Sarri’s words (“We want to keep him here”). The player, assisted by Castagna, asks for a four-year plan of 2.5 million euros per season. Lotito replies with a three-year deal worth 2.1 million. In short: the distance is there.
IDEA – Roma would fill it without problems in the summer considering that they would get a 24-year-old on a free transfer in a department that sees so many uncertainties. An idea born almost by chance, but which could lead to a surprising negotiation considering the rarity of the jersey passes between Lazio and Rome. Luiz Felipe would not be big problems, on the contrary he could stay like that in the capital where his family is very happy. The Brazilian, with another Italian passport, has often been compared to de Vriji who happens to be a profile approached to Rome in these hours. The Dutchman’s contract expires in 2023, but the feeling with Inter is no longer the same.
