Speculation that has been heard all this time may claim that Lautaro Martinez wants to join Barcelona. However, Beppe Marotta said that until now the Argentine player has never asked to leave the San Siro.
Lautaro Martinez is in the spotlight because of his slick performance with Inter Milan this season. Under the care of Antonio Conte’s cold hand, he successfully developed into one of the best young Serie A strikers, even in Europe.
But along with this, of course, there is practical interest from a number of European giants. Moreover, his age is still very young. Lately, there have been several teams associated with Lautaro Martinez, but Barcelona are the most intense.
Reportedly, the La Liga giant is planning to recruit the player in the transfer market next summer. Barcelona believes that Lautaro Martinez is the ideal successor for Luis Suarez.
These rumors continue to develop over time, even mentioned that Lautaro Martinez himself is claimed to want a move to Camp Nou. But this news was denied by Beppe Marotta as Inter Milan’s sporting director.
So far, he has never received a transfer request from the young Argentine.
Of course he is flattered by the interest shown to him from other clubs, but this could be a reason for him to do even better,”
“It’s normal and humane that there is concern for him but from our point of view we want to keep him and he has never expressed a desire to leave. I think we will continue to be together next season.” Marotta said to Sky Sport Italia.
On the one hand too, Inter Milan is also not a typical selling club that just let go of their potential players.
“Everyone knows if he gets special attention in the transfer market. He started the season with extraordinary and also his age is still very young. There are many teams that want to negotiate to get it,”
“Inter is not a club that tends to sell its players. As long as they don’t express their desire to leave, we won’t let them go.” He said.
