Former Inter Milan CEO Ernesto Pellegrini believes that Nerazzurri captain Lautaro Martinez would be worth €150 million.

Pellegrini spoke to Italian broadcaster RAI Radio, via FCInterNews.

At the moment, Martinez is not exactly a player Inter are thinking about selling.

The 26-year-old just inherited the captain’s armband from Samir Handanovic at the Nerazzuri.

Martinez’s importance to this Inter team has only grown season on season.

And for his part, the striker has given every indication that he wants to stay well into the future.

Reports suggest that Inter have made extending Martinez’s contract into a major priority.

The fact that the Argentine still has the better part of three years left to go on his deal (which, at the moment, runs out at the end of June 2028) suggests that Inter want to give him a new deal as a kind of “hands off” message on the transfer market.

But on the other hand, one never knows in football.

There is always a possibility, however remote, of a transfer for top player.

So Inter will undoubtedly have some valuation for Martinez. Even if it’s just at the back of their minds.

And the 26-year-old’s form suggests that this would have to be very high indeed.

Martinez has already scored thirteen goals at the start of this season.

Pellegrini: Inter Should Value Lautaro Martinez At At Least €150M

Former Inter CEO Pellegrini said that “€150 million is a fair amount in my opinion for a player who’s still young and has a great future ahead of him.”

“Considering his athletic and personal qualities. And his eye for goal, like few others.”

Pellegrini also stated that “Inter look very good to me. They’re the most complete team in the league.”

“I’m sure they’ll do well,” he continued.

“Because they’re strong, and not just in terms of their starters. Also in terms of the backups.”

“Marotta did excellently as always, selling Onana in the summer, to finance a transfer window to build this squad.”
