Lionel Scaloni, Argentina’s current coach, believes Lautaro Martinez will benefit from playing alongside Lionel Messi.
The striker Lautaro Martinez is said to have expressed his desire to lead Inter to join Barca.
Lautaro is Barca’s number one transfer target, but the Spanish team is having trouble because they can not meet the terms of breaking the $ 120 million contract. However, the good news for Barca is that he told Inter management that he wants to come to Barca this summer, according to the Daily Mail.
Lionel Scaloni supported he to Barca
“If Lautaro is fortunate to have a teammate like Messi, it will be fortunate for us,” Scaloni told RTVE television on May 20.
Lautaro is Barca’s transfer target, and the Nou Camp team is stepping up negotiations with Inter to recruit the 22-year-old striker. However, Inter demanded a price that is too high for Barca’s ability to pay. Initially, the Italian club demanded $ 97 million plus midfielder Arturo Vidal and asked Barca to loan Antoine Griezmann. However, Inter is said to have reduced the request to $ 99 million due to Barca’s financial difficulties.
“I think Lautaro will be a standard striker in the next few years, and hopefully he will do well,” Scaloni said.
Despite supporting he to Barca, Scaloni said that Inter is still a great team for the student to stick with. “He is an excellent striker, so he needs to play for a good team. However, Inter is now a team like that. They are competing for the championship so it is difficult to accept him to leave. “, Scaloni said. “But if he changes clubs, I hope everything goes well with him.”
Melo: ‘Barca are very strong if they buy Lautaro, Neymar’
Former midfielder Felipe Melo is optimistic concerning the chance of Barca combining the quartet of Messi, Suarez, Neymar and Lautaro Martinez.
“I am terribly curious to see Lautaro playing at Barca. They have Messi and Suarez. Imagine how strong they’re going to be with Neymar and Lautaro. How do you stop that quartet? Perhaps you need it. five Melo on their field and a friendly referee. If not, you may get a red card on the first kick and lose to 0-7, “Melo, former Juventus, and Inter Milan midfielder told Ole (Argentina ) on 17/5.
Lautaro, a 22-year-old Argentine striker playing for Inter, with Neymar is Barca’s top target in the next transfer window. According to the Spanish press, through the exchange of players, the Camp Nou team even desires to have both.
This season, he scored 16 goals and had four passes cleared. His achievement may increase when the season returns next time
“I understand Lautaro. I usually watch him play because he watches Inter. He reminds me of Gabriel Jesus. He is an expert who doesn’t move the ball, knows the way to fight and score several goals. He is the striker of the long run. He is only 22 years old, but very strong, talented and scored many goals “.
Since Lukaku joined Inter in the summer of 2019, he and Lautaro are playing better. The Belgian striker owns 23 goals in the 2019-2020 season, 7 more than his teammates.
