Lautaro Martinez could be sacrificed at Inter this summer in the event that owners Suning ask for a major sale to be made.
This according to today’s print edition of Rome-based newspaper Corriere dello Sport, who report that the 24-year-old’s future at the Nerazzurri will depend on whether the owners decide that a big name player must be sold.
Martinez signed a contract extension with Inter until the end of June 2026 during the fall, but his future at the club nevertheless does not look set in stone.
The financial situation at the club is far from fully stable even after the major sales made last summer, and the owners could ask the club’s directors to cash in on one of their big name players to bring in cash.
The likes of Alessandro Bastoni, Nicolo Barella, and Milan Skriniar are other players whose sales would bring significant cash into the club’s coffers, and sales of any of them could not be ruled out if a big offer comes along.
However, Martinez looks to be by far the player who the club are most willing to sacrifice, and there is interest in the Argentine’s signature from big clubs in La Liga as well as from former Inter coach Antonio Conte at Tottenham Hotspur.
