Inter striker Lautaro Martinez has made his financial demands clear as he looks to potentially resume contract extension talks with the Nerazzurri.

This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere, dello Sport, who report that the Argentine will look to resume talks with the club when he returns from his vacation at the beginning of August.

Martinez is currently on holiday after his international exploits, having won the Copa America with Argentina on Saturday.

However, when he convenes with the squad and manager Simeone Inzaghi, after the club return from their pre-season tour, the 23-year-old will look to clarify his future.

It is still thought that the striker is a target of several top European clubs, with Spanish giants Barcelona, Atletico Madrid, and Real Madrid thought to be most keen on his signature.

The interest of these clubs could still play an important role in determining the player’s future, and should one make an offer which the Nerazzurri deem satisfactory he could be off in the summer.

However, should this not be the case, contract talks will resume, although the player has been clear on the terms he expects financially and it remains to be seen how negotiations will progress.

Under his previous agent, it is reported that the Argentine had been demanding a net salary of €4.5 million in order to stay on with the club past his contract’s current expiration at the end of June 2023.

However, with the player’s stock having risen as well as his having changed agents to Alejandro Camano, it is reported that his demand has risen to €5.5 million, which would make him one of the Nerazzurri’s highest-paid players.
