Barca see themselves in pole position to sign Lautaro Martinez
Barcelona have Lautaro Martinez highlighted in red in their list of signings for the 2020/21 season. And although the scenarios keep on appearing, the latest information which the 'Mirror' published, talks about their confidence of buying him because of their privileged starting position.
According to the aforementioned sources, those at the Camp Nou believe they are in pole position to get the Inter striker. Because of their great interest in him, because they have been watching him for a while and because of the Messi factor.
They also say he would be the perfect replacement for Luis Suarez, thereby hinting that the Uruguayan attacker will not continue in the side next season. That is something which is uncertain as of today.
In fact, nobody is ignoring the fact that the current coronavirus situation could mean his departure fee from Giuseppe Meazza is cheaper.
He is on the agenda of several big European clubs. Whether Barca are leading the way or not, what is clear is that this summer will be very entertaining at Inter Milan's headquarters where offers will flood in for the Argentine.
At the same time, 'The Mirror' are saying that Aubameyang is seen by Antonio Conte as the perfect substitute for Lautaro up front.
