The latest from Inter: 85 million and Junior for Lautaro
Inter Milan aren't willing to let Lautaro Martínez leave easily. The Italian side, 'Calciomercato' inform, will not accept less than the release clause unless there is a player in the deal.
In this way, according to the aforementioned source, Antonio Conte's side have reportedly proposed to Barcelona an 85 million euro offer plus Junior Firpo to let the player leave.
'Sport' assures that Barcelona aren't willing to pay such an amount of money, and they estimate that Lautaro Martínez, after the COVID-19 crisis, is not worth the 111 million euro release clause.
Inter and Barca's stances in the negotiations are very far away. None of the two sides want to give in and time is running out.
Although the 111 million euro release clause expires on 7th July, which could make Barca rush, the fact that the Spanish side aren't going to pay the 111 million makes them take the negotiations a little more calmly.
Barcelona are counting on Lautaro to force the issue with Inter Milan and ask for a more affordable exit. If they do not do so, they will not sign him.
The reports which place Lautaro at Barcelona have taken their toll on the fans. The Inter faithful blame him for the Coppa Italia semi-final defeat Napoli.
