Nicolò Rovella’s future at Lazio uncertain amid managerial changes


Juve midfielder Nicolò Rovella who joined Lazio last summer upon explicit request from manager Maurizio Sarri, finds himself on the transfer list following Igor Tudor’s arrival as the new head coach. Rovella’s stint at Lazio began with a loan move from the Bianconeri, with an obligation to buy his contract for €17 million, due by June 2025.

According to reports from Corriere dello Sport, despite Rovella’s initial acquisition being orchestrated by Sarri, the recent managerial change has shifted the dynamics, casting uncertainty over the midfielder’s future at the club. The Juventus hierarchy is reportedly unwavering in their commitment to the buyout clause, signaling their reluctance to entertain any renegotiation attempts from Lazio.

This stance places Lazio in a precarious position, as they must now navigate the situation by either finding a suitable buyer for Rovella or committing to the agreed-upon payment to Juventus. Regardless of the financial implications for Lazio, the obligation to pay the €17 million remains binding, leaving the club with little room for maneuver.
