From Italy they assure that Inter has no intention of letting the Argentine leave, much less for Spain.
After adding a disappointment on Thursday league of Spain with a new runner-up, Barcelona has received another fright this Friday. On this occasion, the setback does not have to do strictly with football, but with the position of Inter de Milan regarding the sale of Lautaro Martínez, whose signing by the Catalans seems to be further and further away.
Especially after the statements made in the last hours by the CEO of the Serie A club, Giuseppe Marotta. The general director of Inter has indicated that the Argentine international striker has expressed no interest in leaving the entity, and has stated that the rumors linking him to Barça are lost in a vacuum because, in his opinion, what matters are the acts”
“It is a fact that Lautaro Martínez is our player and that he has never expressed the will to leave,” Marotta said in remarks for DAZN prior to Inter’s match with SPAL (4-0 for Antonio Conte’s).
Asked if Lautaro has lowered his performance since Barça’s interest in his services became known, Marotta acknowledged that Martínez has had a period of involution, but in recent weeks he has been raising the bar and showing his qualities.
On the other hand, Marotta has not ruled out the possibility that Inter sign Alexis Sánchez as a permanent footballer for the Nerazzur team, recalling that the former Barça player belongs to Manchester United.
