In recent weeks, or perhaps months, Lautaro Martinez has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in the summer. Of course, as there are no games to target on for media, the reporting has certainly been a lot more transfer-related as of late and the Argentine striker can’t escape the gossips.
According to today’s edition of Tuttosport (via TuttoMercatoWeb.com), the Catalan side are not in any way ready to let go of the Inter forward, who has been one of Inter’s most influential players thus for this season. In fact, contacts with the player’s agent are frequent.
According to the report, Barca and the agent, have reached an agreement in principle on the contract and now Barcelona will have to convince Inter Milan. This is easier said than done, as the Nerazzurri have no intention of giving up their big star unless a hefty offer is presented.
On this front, the €111m release clause will be decisive as a reference point, since Inter aren’t willing to take anything less.
