Inter continue to have zero intention of letting Lautaro Martinez depart and once his release clause expires they could even demand more for him according to a report in today’s print edition of Italian daily newspaper Tuttosport.
The report states that his €111 million release clause expires in four days time on July 7 whilst reports in Spain lately have insisted that it expires on July 15 instead.
Barcelona could wait until his release clause has expired because if Lautaro, who they have agreed terms with, asks Inter to leave the club, the Nerazzurri could find themselves in a difficult position.
The Blaugrana are convinced that Lautaro’s price could drop to somewhere between €60-70 million and the addition of one or two players should be enough to get a deal done with Inter but Inter have other ideas in mind and could ask for more than €111 million to let him go.
This season the 22-year-old has made 36 appearances across all competitions to date, in which he has scored 17 goals and tallied five assists.
