Jose Alberti has made a name for himself as an expert when it comes to South American football, so when he makes announcements regarding the future of players from that part of the world, people tend to give him his due amount of credence .Speaking to Radio CalcioMercato, Alberti was pretty frank when it came to Lavezzi’s future:
“When Lavezzi discovers that Cambiasso and other players earn much more [than] him, it is normal to want a change. He’s doing very well for Napoli, but he is 27-years-old and it is time for a change”.
“Ezequiel Lavezzi will definitely leave Naples at the end of the season, but he will not go to Italy; He will move to England and sign for Liverpool”.
Considering Napoli owner Aurelio De Laurentiis has been saying in the media he'll be open for offers for the likes of Lavezzi in the summer, could there be any truth in the rumour he'll be seeking pastures new, possibly in a reds shirt next season?
He only goes on to score a double against Chelsea tonight. Clearly a good omen.
I was shouting for his guy in the summer but obviously that didn't happen. I would be happy to see him come still but he is a year older and possibly started to go outside our recruitment scope. Having said that, we signed Downing at 27 years of age last summer so why not...?
I think I speak for most of us when I say i would prefer Cavani but that is very unlikely. Not that Lavezzi is likely mind.
