Inter striker Lautaro Martinez is considering cutting ties with his long-term representatives and pursuing his contract negotiations with the club by himself or through his father.
According to FCInterNews.it, the Argentina international has seen his relationship with agents Beto Yaque and Rolando Zarate hit a snag in recent weeks, despite the pair provisionally agreeing a new contract for him with Inter, with a view to signing it by 20 April.
However, Yaque and Zarate are believed to have touted Martinez to Barcelona as the Blaugrana search for a new striker, irking the player who is keen to remain at Inter and is happy in Milan.
As a result, Martinez is considering dropping the pair and following the path of teammate Milan Skriniar in handling renewal negotiations himself, or handing authority over to his father. Alternatively, the 23-year-old will wait until the end of the season and look for a new agent in the meantime, with no shortage of options.
The situation remains delicate due to the work of Yaque and Zarate in putting the contract in place, with any deal signed without their involvement likely to have wider financial repercussions.
Inter are ready to approach the matter delicately to avoid any legal arguments, but remain committed to extending Martinez’s deal as soon as possible.
