An agreement between Barcelona and Inter over Lautaro Martinez appears to be far away at this moment in time according to a report in today’s print edition of Tuttosport.
The Blaugrana club have shown an extremely keen interest in landing the Argentine national team striker but it remains to be seen what their plans are when it comes to moving for the highly rated 22-year-old.
Lautaro has a release clause in his current contract worth €111 million and it is only valid to clubs outside of Italy in the first two weeks of July.
If Barcelona do not trigger this, the report warns that they may have to pay somewhere between €130-150 million for the former Racing Club player, who is under contract with the Nerazzurri until the end of the 2022/23 season.
They could well look to bring down the total cost of any deal but the players that Barcelona are seemingly willing to offer do not interest Inter and the player Inter would like, Arthur, is deemed non-transferable.
Many reports have also suggested that Barcelona would like to include Arturo Vidal but this report goes on to state that Inter do not want the Chilean as part of a deal and would prefer to do a separate deal for him.
