Luis Alberto will hardly forget the joy he is experiencing these days. Winning a derby della Capitale, one of the most pressure-packed matches in European football, is always special, but doing it with a great double is obviously worth even more. The Spanish was defined, “sumptuous”, “magician”, “boss” and even “his majesty” in the Italian media after last Friday’s performance, although that exhibition did not surprise so much.
The one from San José del Valle has been maintaining a very, very high level in Calcio for years. His house specialty was always assists, being the best in Serie A in this data in 2017/18 (14) and also last year (16). ANDn this season, however, something has changed in his game.
Beyond the defensive phase work, which never neglects, Luis Alberto is moving almost second forward next to Immobile. The result is that he still has not signed assists, something rare in his laziale journey, but he is scoring many more goals, especially since December. In the last six days he has played five, two of which in the unforgettable derby with Roma.
Since 2016, when he arrived in the Eternal City for just five million euros, the Spaniard has played 155 games, with 32 goals and 45 assists. lifting an Italian Cup and two Super Cups. In Italy he is considered without a doubt one of the most decisive players in the championship and, therefore, there is never a lack of market rumors about his future.
Despite having recently renewed his contract until 2025, Milan have taken an interest in his situation. The Rossoneri could try in the coming months a negotiation with Claudio Lotito, who will ask, except for surprises, around 50 million euros for his services.
All this, however, did not help Luis Alberto to have some prominence with his Selection. In their history there is hardly a presence with the absolute, 16 minutes against Costa Rica in a friendly in 2017. He was called up again in 2019, but remaining on the bench against Norway and Sweden. Then nothing else.
The Italian media speak of his absence as a “rare case” and “paradox”: “What about Luis Alberto is almost absurd, ignoring him makes no sense,” ‘Leggo’ wrote today. The ex-Sevilla player, who will turn 29 in September, knows that it is difficult for him, but he still dreams of winning a place in the next European Championship. If he continues with these performances, it will be impossible for Luis Enrique not to think about it.
