One of the main novels of the pass market would be close to reaching its end. After several weeks of negotiations, Barcelona and Inter would have reached an agreement in principle so that Lautaro Martínez stop at the Barça institution.
Despite the strong desire to hire the Argentinean (the leaders see in El Toro the ideal replacement for Luis Suárez and a great partner for Lionel Messi), due to the economic crisis caused by the pandemic of the coronavirus the culés they are not willing to pay the 111 million euros of their termination clause.
After rejecting an offer of 90 million euros plus a player, according to Sport Both teams agreed to seal the transfer in exchange for 60 million euros plus the arrival of two footballers.
Although the Spanish media maintains that it remains to define the names of those two athletes who will go to neroazzurro, Maintains that there are 5 options on the table: Arturo Vidal, Ivan Rakitic, Samuel Umtiti, Carles Aleñá or Nélson Semedo.
The Chilean, who is looking to have more minutes, would have a great consensus within the Milan squad, since he is an old weakness of the institution and someone whom the technical director Antonio Conte knows very well. Together they were champions at Juventus.
The Croatian and the French defender, meanwhile, are two footballers to whom Barcelona put the transfer poster a while back. From the club they believe that their arrivals have already been amortized and that they have options within the campus to replace them.
In case that Inter is looking for younger players, the variants of Aleñá (22 years old), who is currently on loan at Betis, and Semedo (26), who this season alternated between starter and substitute, appear.
It is worth remembering that Lautaro Martínez, 22, has a contract with the Neroazzurro until June 2023 and that he has already rejected some offers to renew his contract. In the current season, El Toro have converted 16 goals (11 for Serie A and 5 for the Champions League) in 31 presentations.
