Legendary Inter defender Riccardo Ferri has shared his belief that Inter would not be improving the squad by bringing in Paul Pogba if Lautaro Martinez is to depart in the coming months.

Inter have been linked with a move for Manchester United man Pogba ahead of the upcoming Summer transfer window whilst Lautaro has been strongly linked with an exit from Inter with La Liga giants Barcelona extremely keen on signing him.

Lautaro has a €111 million release clause in his contract, which, if met would give Inter half the money required to sign Pogba with a report earlier on today suggesting the World Cup winning Frenchman would cost a total of €220 million.

“Selling Lautaro to get to Pogba would not lead to an improvement to the squad and that is with all due respect to Pogba who is a great player,” Ferri began an interview with Milan based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, which appeared in today’s print edition.

“Pogba does not win matches nor titles on his own, that is what Barcelona’s Lionel Messi does.

“I think Inter are working very well. The club is healthy, wants to return to winning ways and knows what the best strategy is to continue growing and close the gap with Juve.

“I think the the goal is to enlarge the squad, make it even more complete and full of quality, but I don’t think Conte is looking to a single player to help make that leap.”

This season Pogba has made just eight appearances due to injury, in which he has tallied two assists. Lautaro on the other hand has made 31 appearances and scored 16 goals and tallied four assists.
