Diego Laxalt | Early Life and Family

On February 7, 1993, Diego Sebastian Laxalt Suarez was born to Mario Vecino and Doris Falero in Montevideo, Uruguay.

The Uruguayan developed a taste for football at an early age and decided to be a professional one day. As a result, a passionate Diego would be scouted by Defensor Sporting.

At the same time, the Montevideo-based club remarked that Laxalt one of their top players, as the Uruguayan was versatile and could play in several positions even at a young age.

Furthermore, Laxalt surpassed most of his peers as he rose through the youth ranks of Defensor Sporting.

The midfielder was a wonder to the observer, agile, creative, energetic, and an eye for goal.

Ultimately, the Italian giants Internazionale Milan came knocking to earn the services of the exceptional Uruguayan.

Diego Laxalt | Age, Height, Body & Other Stats

As mentioned above, the Milan midfielder was born in 1993 and is 29  years old at present. Isn’t it surprising how fast time passes?

In one instance, you’re at the other end of the world playing football in your hometown, and with a blink of an eye, you’re on the other side, donning the shirt of one of the best clubs in the world.

Additionally, the Red and Blacks signed the prospective midfielder who stands at 5’10” (1.78 m).

Laxalt also weighs a proper 68kg (150 lb) and is tenacious on the pitch, and regularly uses his agile yet strong body to commit opponents.

In fact, AC Milan fans can corroborate that it is quite challenging to dispossess Diego because of his impeccable physical presence and a brilliant way of shielding the ball.

In the same way, the Uruguayan has an athletic build with a leaner frame.

Consequently, it grants the midfielder the ability to burst into sprints, win duels, maintain balance when under intense pressing.

Moreover, his dribbling skills assist the Torino loanee in avoiding being boxed. Added to that, Laxalt’s dangerous weapon is his left foot.

As such, the winger left-back can deliver crosses, strike with brute force to smash the ball into the net, and similarly, has a fantastic ball controlling expertise.

Diego Laxalt | Career: Club-level, Country & Current Teams

After rising through the youth group, Diego assumed a role with the first team of Defensor Sporting.

Simultaneously, the Uruguayan debuted against the city rivals Montevideo Wanderers, on September 1, 2012, in a 4-0 thrashing of the latter.

With an impressive run with the South American Championship U-20 football, the gifted midfielder put on the Violeta shirt and started an away game against Nacional.

Eventually, the Montevideo side won 1-0, with a late goal from Laxalt.

Italy on the Horizon

The midfielder’s nascent career gradually took a trend when he garnered interest from top clubs in Europe. Soon enough, Nerazzurri came inquiring about the availability of the player.

In the 2013 January transfer window, the Uruguayan was Italy bound. However, the Inter head coach didn’t include Diego in the preseason squad.

So when at the start of a new season, Laxalt got loaned out to Bologna to collect game time and experience the atmosphere in Italy, in general.

Afterward, the loan deal with the Rossoblu ended, and Walter Mazzarri of Inter added the youngster to the preseason squad to prepare for an upcoming season.

Most importantly, Diego faced another spell, this time to Empoli. In fact, the loan contract was viable to both Empoli and Laxalt because the club ran into trouble that season.

With the Uruguayans assistance, the Gli Azzurri managed to cling onto the first tier. Despite only one year loan, there was a contract clause to counter-purchase, but Empoli decided not to go through that.

Venture in Italy Continues

I wouldn’t say gaining experience in more than one club is terrible, but Diego definitely had plenty of roaming to do. Looking at his transfer route makes me tired.

Nonetheless, the Uruguayan left-winger enjoyed every moment as he managed to work under various coaches and discover his play style.

In like manner, Genoa accepted Laxalt into their ranks for 18 months with a purchase option.

Simultaneously, the midfielder returned the trust by scoring his first 2 goals on October 28, 2015, against Italian club Torino, thereby leading the match to end the game in a draw.

In the end, Laxalt showed promise, and Il Grifone traded Cristian Ansaldi to sign Diego. The time with Genoa was valuable and nurturing.

As a result, the Italian giants, AC Milan, paid the Uruguayan release clause, and from that moment on, an enormous weight rested upon the South American footballer.

As a matter of fact, playing for one of the most reputed and successful clubs comes with great responsibility and pride.

The Rossoneri acquired Laxalt for a record sum of €14 million with a €4 million bonus in a similar fashion.

Ultimately, Diego officially draped the red and the black jersey on August 25, 2018, as a late substitute for Fabio Brini in a 3-2 defeat to rivals Napoli.

On the contrary, the Milan squad was jam-packed with players, and hence the Rossoneri loaned out the Uruguayan to Torino for a whole season with a buy option.

International Career

At the age of 20, Diego made a competitive debut for his country in the 2013 South American Youth Championship, organized in Argentina.

Similarly, the Uruguayan side battled Peru to end the match in a 3-3 draw. Concurrently, in the next match against Brazil, he scored a goal to win it by 3-2.

With Laxalt’s contributions, Uruguay qualified for the U-20 World Cup in Turkey and even came as a Best XI for the entire tournament.

Obviously, for the 2013 U-20 World Cup, Diego came on in a defeat against Croatia but was victorious with the team with a 2-0 loss of New Zealand.

Similarly, the Uruguayan also went onto qualify for the knockout stages after beating Uzbekistan.

In concert, the South American qualifying with his squad beating Nigeria, Spain, and leveling with Iraq. Hence, Uruguay finished second with 6 points, just close behind Croatia.

Moreover, Laxalt’s senior career started with Uruguay’s Copa America Centenario campaign, for which he was a replacement for an injury-ridden Cristian Rodriguez.

However, the Milan midfielder’s senior squad experience wouldn’t come until a match against Ireland, and with that, he also made it to the 2018 World Cup 26-man roster.

Diego Laxalt | Net Worth, Transfer Market & Salary

In particular, Diego accrued a handsome net worth of over $1 million after almost what seems to be a decade-long professional career.

On the other hand, the exact Salary and market value of Laxalt during his time at Defensor Sporting remain in the dark.

Due to the exceptional feat showcased by the Uruguayan at the Montevideo-based club, Internazionale wanted to add the youngster to their squad. The deal between the two clubs got finalized for €2.3 million sums.

At that time, Laxalt had a market value of €2.3 million. Afterward, in August’s summer transfer window, Italian club Bologna signed the loan deal’s left-back.

Likewise, after ending the loan spell at Bologna, Empoli wanted to acquire Diego’s signature for yet another loan deal that would keep him at the club until January of 2015.

During that time, Laxalt recorded a market value of €3.4 million. Despite being a season-long loan contract, Empoli had the permission to counter-purchase the Uruguayan if they desired it.

After ending a mildly successful season at EmpoliInter Milan loaned Laxalt to Genoa for an estimated €500k fee.

Thereafter, with the end of fruitful time at Genoa, Diego returned to Internazionale in the hopes of making the starting squad.

Contrarily, Genoa was working out a deal with the Italian giants to sign the midfielder turned left-winger permanently.

Finally, the winger became a Genoa player after the club reportedly handed in a transfer fee of €5.8 million.

Unfortunately, even with the best performances, the Il Griffin offloaded the Uruguayan to AC Milan, who gladly purchased Deigo for a whopping €14.9 million.

According to the transfermarkt website, Laxalt recorded a career-high of €18 million while in Milan.

Contrarily, the midfielder marked €12 million and is spending time at Torino’s city for a loan deal of €500k.

On the other hand, Diego is an avid lover of cars, and as such, his Instagram comprises pictures of his most valuable possession.

The photos of a BMW 2002 TII highlight his Instagram pages, as the Uruguayan proudly displays the shiny red, vintage car- a real beauty!

Diego Laxalt Personal Life | Relationship Status

In truth, Diego is in a relationship with a lady named Antonella Gollo. The couple isn’t yet ready to move a base up with their relationship but remains committed and loyal to one another.
