Inter Milan chief Giuseppe Marotta has asked Martinez to maintain calm while being linked to Barcelona.
Martinez has attracted the attention of several clubs around Europe – one of them being Barcelona. As of now, there are speculations of him moving to the La Liga side after the 2019-20 season is over.
“There are two factors to consider, the competitive one and the one relating to the transfer market, which run concurrently,” Marotta told Sky Sport Italia .
“Inter don’t want to sell a 23-year-old lad like him, but this is a time when rumours are flying about.
“We saw Lautaro the great player in the first half of the season, which caught the attention of big clubs.
“Now, he must find peace of mind to guarantee Inter the performance levels he showed in the first half of the season.”
January Inter signing Christian Eriksen is currently being evaluated by the Serie A side.
“Eriksen joined in January, obviously with problems in an area of the pitch that is suffering from some absences,” Marotta added. “He’s a great player and he can certainly give much more. We have to be patient with him.
“There are eight games left and 24 points up for grabs. We’ve suffered 4 defeats, so many for what Inter represent but not that many in context of our project.
“As for the Europa League, we’ll try to win it. We don’t know how the other teams in the competition are faring right now, but we must believe. We play to win and this is a big objective for us.”
