Lautaro Martínez will soon renew his contract with Internazionale. The Argentine striker is linked to FC Barcelona and Real Madrid in the rumour circuit, but his agent is suppressing those rumours.
Beto Yacque, one of the representatives of Martínez, was in the main building of Inter on Monday to discuss the future of rush hour. It fed the rumours that a transfer was in the making, but Yacque contradicts that. “Real Madrid? Fake news. Barcelona? No”, the fiduciary is clear when he leaves the building, quoted by Sky Sport Italia. “Lautaro is an Inter-player.”
The meeting was scheduled to discuss a contract extension for Martínez at I Nerazzurri. It did not become concrete today, it was an exploratory meeting. Both parties are expected to meet again at the end of September to discuss further.
Real and Barcelona can therefore put Martínez out of their minds. Ronald Koemans team has been interested in the rush hour for a long time, but was unable to meet Inters asking price. Reals interest slumbered in the background.
