Inter Milan want Barcelona star in exchange for Lautaro Martinez. It remains to be seen if the Blaugrana agree to the demand.
Luis Suarez has loyally served as Barcelona’s striker for years since joining the club in 2014. However, the Uruguayan is currently in decline and the Blaugrana have been looking for his replacement for a while now.
Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez has long been linked with the Spanish Giants. It is likely that the Catalan club will come after him in the coming transfer window. Even his agent, Sergio Zarate, added fuel to the fire earlier this week when he said “there is a very big possibility” the 22-year-old would join Barca.
Inter Milan want Barcelona star in exchange for Lautaro Martinez
Although Inter Milan vice-president Javier Zanetti insists that the club are determined to keep Lautaro Martinez beyond this season, it will take a herculean task to stop him from moving to Barcelona if the club comes calling.
While Martinez is priced at €111 million, La Gazzetta dello Sport has reported that Inter Milan will ask for French striker Antoine Griezmann in exchange for their Argentine forward.
The report adds that that Inter are looking at options should Martinez be sold this summer and Barcelona’s Griezmann is on the shortlist of replacements.
Opinions are spilt on whether Barcelona will agree to the trade or just outright pay the fee.
Griezmann is only in his first season at Barcelona. However, there has already been plenty of conflicting speculation about his future at the Camp Nou.
It remains to be seen what will happen in the summer. However, it is likely that the Martinez will wear the Barcelona jersey next season.
