The interest of the Catalan side Barcelona is no secret in the football world especially in Spain and in Italy.
However, reports indicate that their fierce rival in Madrid is also interested in the Argentine forward.
The entourage of the Inter Milan forward is currently in Spain to hear offers for their client.
While reports in Italy stated that as a response to the interests of the La Liga Giants, Inter Milan put a price tag on his transfer valued at €90 million.
Personal Agreement made between the partiesAccording to reports in both Italy and Spain, Barcelona has agreed personal terms with the player with a salary of €10 Million per year. Which is almost double the salary of the Argentine.
Although there are reports that confirms the agreement of personal terms between the parties, it seems that the Italian Giant is not willing to sell their prized center forward.
Inter Milan keen on extensionWhile there are many suitors to their prized asset, Inter is keen on retaining his services for the team.
Inter head coach Antonio Conte himself wants the the center forward to stay. The management is clear in their plan to keep the player as part of the long term plan with other future talents with the likes of Barella, Sensi, and Lukaku.
Will Lautaro stay?Despite the reluctance to sell of Inter Milan, they might be left with no choice if the player really wants to play alongside his compatriot and idol Lionel Messi.
In addition, the money in exchange for his transfer will be a big boost for their goal of spoiling the 10 straight scudetto of the Ronaldo-led Juventus team.
€90 million is a big money which can help Antonio Conte address the team’s weaknesses and build a team capable of competing with Juventus and other rising Seria A teams.
All in all, it will really depend on the will of Lautaro Martinez. If he stays, he will definitely be instrumental to the upcoming season for Inter Milan under Antonio Conte.
While if he leaves, say, for Barcelona, that would be fun to watch. Seeing a possible successor to Lionel Messi rise in Catalonia who is also Argentinian.
