Barcelona cannot currently afford to offer Inter any more than €50 million for striker Lautaro Martinez according to a report from Italian broadcaster Sport Mediaset.

The Blaugrana club have shown an extremely strong interest in signing the highly rated 22-year-old Argentine national team forward ahead of the Summer transfer window but do not have the finances to meet Inter’s demands for him.

The report claims that Barcelona could only afford to offer Inter a fee in the region of €45-50 million due to their financial situation, a fee which Inter would not even think about sitting around the negotiation table for.

Inter are understood to want €90 million in cash plus Arturo Vidal on a permanent basis and Antoine Griezmann on loan.

Lautaro, who joined Inter in a circa €20 million deal from Racing Club in the Summer of 2018, has made 31 appearances across all competitions this term, in which he has scored 16 goals and provided four assists for his teamamtes.
