Legendary Ex-Inter President Massimo Moratti: “Lautaro Martinez Must Express 100% Of His Quality”

Legendary former Inter President Massimo Moratti believes that striker Lautaro Martinez still has more to give and must work to reach his full potential.

Speaking to Italian news outlet CalcioStyle, the former Nerazzurri President gave his thoughts on the current striker and also suggested that Paulo Dybala is a player who he would attempt to sign.

Martinez has been an important player for the Nerazzurri especially since Antonio Conte arrived in the summer of 2019, the Argentine’s second season with the club.

This season Martinez has once again been the focal point of Inter’s attack, although he has come in for some criticism based on some of his performances lacking impact, and for having endured a goal drought through a slump in form by the team.

Moratti believes that the 24-year-old has undoubted quality and can be a positive force for the Nerazzurri, but that he must work to show all of it.

Asked about the potential lack of chemistry between Martinez and Edin Dzeko, he suggested that “In reality, perhaps a little luck was lacking, which could lead to different assessments.”

“Of course, a further step up is necessary from Lautaro Martinez,” he added, “he has the quality – he must express himself it 100%. We’re all waiting to see it.”

Of the title race in Serie A, Moratti said that “Every Sunday the situation changes, but Inter seems to me to be in good enough form to keep it up until the end.”

Asked whether he thinks Romelu Lukaku could return to Inter from Chelsea, he stated that “Honestly, I couldn’t say. Chelsea are also experiencing a strange situation of their own, Lukaku cost them over €100 million, I can’t imagine the Belgian leaving easily.”

And on whether he’d like to sign Gianluigi Donnarumma, Moratti said that “He’s certainly a very good player, but I don’t think he’ll want to leave PSG, he’ll want to show that he’s a top player there.”

“Let’s say that Paulo Dybala, who I like a lot, is someone I would make an attempt to sign,” he added.
