Inter Milan Won’t Sell Lautaro Martinez For A Penny Less Than €100M As Striker Crests In Form, Italian Media Report
Inter would not sell striker Lautaro Martinez for an offer of less than €100 million.
This according to today’s print edition of Milan-based newspaper Gazzetta dello Sport, via FCInterNews, who report that as the 25-year-old crests in form and grows into the captain’s armband, it would take a huge offer to turn the Nerazzurri’s head.
Martinez has been in outstanding form since the return from the winter break, with the Argentine scoring in every single match across all competitions apart from the win over Napoli and the loss to Empoli in Serie A.
There is a sense that the 25-year-old has hit an even higher level after the boost in confidence that came with winning the World Cup in December.
Now, the Nerazzurri view Martinez as a player who they want to build around in the long-term future, whilst the player’s newfound leadership role makes him the likely candidate to inherit the captaincy from Samir Handanovic on a permanent basis.
As such, Inter would not be inclined to sell Martinez unless a truly huge offer were to come in.
The Gazzetta reports that Inter’s valuation is now for nothing less than an offer in the triple digits if they are to even think about listening to bids for the Argentine.
