Italian broadcaster Sky Sport Italia have revealed a previously unknown term relating to the release clause in Inter striker Lautaro Martinez’s current contract.
The 22-year-old Argentine national team forward has a €111 million release clause in his deal and it is well known that the clause is only valid for clubs outside of Italy and can only be activated in the first fortnight of every July.
Sky Sport Italia have today revealed another term and that term is that once the clause is activated, it must be paid in full within one week.
It now remains to be seen if this will put teams off from trying to activate his release clause given they will need to cough up a substantial amount all at once opposed to paying it in a series of instalments.
This season Lautaro, who is under contract until 2023, has made 31 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 16 goals and provided four assists.
