Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti has some bad news for Barcelona fans.
The club have been strongly linked with a move for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez in the last few months. The Argentine striker’s agent, Barcelona players have all talked about a possible move to Nou Camp where he will be needed given Barcelona’s barren run in front of goal.
However, it would seem Inter Milan are not going to be easy to negotiate with. Their vice-president and club legend Zanetti was live on Instagram with another former Inter forward in Christian Vieri and this is what Zanetti had to say about Martinez.
“I will be sincere. When we took him, we knew he was one of Argentina‘s most promising young men.
“Now with the work of [head coach Antonio] Conte, at just 22 years old, he can give a lot. Right now here, with everything that is happening, we are not thinking about what he will do.
“Then we’ll see, but now I see him very happy here at Inter. And with Lukaku he is great.”
This does mean Inter have Lautaro in their long term plans and Barcelona will either have to leave disappointed or turn up with loaded briefcases to sign Martinez.
