It is no surprise that Barcelona is reportedly interested in Internazionale’s Lautaro Martinez. They are already trying their best to be able to take the Argentine striker to Spain. And, because of that, Internazionale is already starting to make things difficult for the Catalans.
According to the newspaper “Sport”, the Italian club is trying to make Lautaro sign a new contract, which would increase his wages. With that, the Catalan side would have to increase its offer for the player.
Currently, Laurtaro’s contract goes until 2023, but it is not so difficult to take the player out of Inter. Especially for Barcelona, as Martinez would also be interested in joining the Catalans, especially for the opportunity to play alongside Messi.
Even though the Italian side is trying to increase Martinez’s wages, Barca already noticed that and is trying to convince the Argentine.
The Catalan side sees Lautaro Martinez as a possible substitute for Luis Suarez. Apart from that, the Argentine could become a symbol of the new Barcelona, kind of a revolution, in which many European clubs seem to be passing through.
Because of that, they will try everything they got to close the deal. Even offering some players, such as Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic, and Nelson Semedo.
In the end, it could all be in the hands of Lautaro himself. Internazionale knows that he is a great player and very important to the squad. It is obvious that they don’t want to lose him and, if they can’t hold the Argentine, they would like to get a good amount of money.
Not only because of his skills but also because of his age. Lautaro is only 22 years old and has a lot of room for improvement.
For Barcelona, it would mean a lot having him. And for the Argentine, it could mean a lot playing alongside Lionel Messi.
