Luis Suarez has backed Barcelona’s bid to sign Lautaro Martinez.
The Inter Milan striker is on fire this season and has been linked with a move to Barcelona.
This would potentially spell doom for Suarez given their ages. However, Suarez has welcomed the competition keeping in mind that it will help the club.
“Lautaro is very talented. He is a player who in his second year in Italy is playing at a great level,” the Uruguayan told RAC 1 on Friday.
“But the players do not make decisions; I have been saying for two years that it would be good to bring in a young striker so he can start adapting and learn for when I leave.”
“Sometimes when you are playing you hear that you need to be subbed already. That is the way football is,” he added.
“You realised that people value your work when you are not there. It is a comfort.
“It is good for players to come in because it makes you competitive and more concerned about being able to play.
“I am aware of my age and I have to pace myself more and more. Competition is healthy and it is good for the team.”
