Transfer news has been swirling around Lautaro Martinez for quite some time now. As reported earlier by IWW: Most Wanted Striker: Lautaro Martinez , Barcelona have reportedly stepped up their pursuit for the striker.
Inter have also reportedly made it clear that they will take full payment instead of player + cash offer. But until then, Inter is very happy to keep and further build their team around Lautaro.
Inter chief Marotta spoke with the media and said “We want to strengthen the team structure of which Lautaro is an important part. He is young, very keen and he is now becoming a true champion.”
“This thanks to the work of Conte, and himself. He has proven to have great football and professional skills.”
“We’ll see what Barcelona wants to do and then we will see what he wants. Inter does not want to sell, but to buy as big clubs do and we want to follow this line. There is a clause and it ends on July 7.”
The striker remains poised as Serie A season is set to resume and will look to pair up with Lukaku in their chase for the Scudetto.
