Lautaro Martinez has been very close to joining Barcelona from Inter Milan two years ago.
The Blaugrana and the Argentine international had reached a personal agreement, but the financial consequences of the Covid-19 pandemic shattered any opportunities for the former to make any transfer possible.
However, as before, conditions in football are changing and according to reports, they have changed in a way that will allow Barca to finally get Martinez’s contract over the line.
Barcelona are back in the process of signing Lautaro Martinez from Inter, according to reports from Sport.
The 24-year-old still has a chance to leave the Serie A champions, but it seems the club is willing to lower its asking price to trade players as part of a package deal.
Inter Milan have shown interest in Miralem Pjanic and Memphis Depay, two players who appear to be in excess of Xavi’s reconstruction for the Catalan giants.
Lautaro Martinez, who has scored 15 goals and three assistants in 28 league games this season, is seen as a less expensive option than Erling Haaland and Robert Lewandowski.
