Lautaro ‘wants Barcelona move but won’t force a transfer from Inter’
Inter striker Lautaro Martinez’ agents have received a huge contract offer from Spanish giants Barcelona but aren’t going to force a move away from the Nerazzurri, according to a report from Italian media outlet FcInterNews today.
The report details how the Blaugrana have offered Lautaro a five-year contract worth €10 million net per season plus bonuses, which he has already accepted. Beto Yaque, however, has no interest in attempting to force a deal to take place, as he understands the wishes of the 22-year-old Argentinian international striker is to leave the Nerazzurri on good terms.
If Barcelona can’t sell enough players to raise funds for the deal, the report continues, they may not be able to pay his €111 million release clause. Inter aren’t interested in the suggested formula of €70 million plus two players in exchange, instead asking for cash only.
There are no offers from England, the report highlights, as both Manchester City and Chelsea don’t have the funds to spend on the player. Lautaro and his entourage do consider Inter’s new contract offer worth €4.5 million net per season to be a little low, compared to the figures offered by Barcelona.
