Barcelona could pay Lautaro Martinez’s €111 million release clause with thanks to a financial fund according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper La Repubblica.

The report continues that La Liga restarting has helped Barcelona’s financial situation a great deal and that they now don’t need to raise cash first buy selling off players to afford signing Lautaro Martinez.

Therefore, according to the report, the Blaugrana are considering acquiring capital from a fund consisting of sponsors and partners to activate Lautaro Martinez €111 million release clause, funds which will be repaid from offloading players deemed surplus to requirements.

The Blaugrana club have identified the highly rated 22-year-old striker as their number one transfer target for this Summer and although they have tried to deal with Inter, the Nerazzurri remain adamant that they do not need to sell him and the only way he can leave is if his release clause is activated.

The release clause is only valid for the first fortnight of next month and has many conditions attached to it, including the condition that it can only be activated by clubs outside of Italy.

The Argentine national team striker has been in good form this season, his first as a regular starter at the club. He has teamed up well with Romelu Lukaku in the attack and has netted 16 goals and tallied four assists in 31 appearances across all competitions to date.
