This Summer, Barcelona is currently facing the possibility of losing out on a contract for Inter Milan’s Lautaro Martinez, because they are struggling to put together a package for Argentina’s international community.
Martinez has a €111 m (£97.1 m) release clause in his new contract at San Siro, however it is understood that the Spanish champions will fail to afford the buy-out fee due to the financial effect of the coronavirus.
Quique Setien’s side tried to reduce the expense of the deal by offering Inter the option of a range of first-team players, according to Sky Sport Italia.
Though, the news assert that the Italians are unhappy with any package offered by the Catalan giants, specifying that they will fail to sign the center this summer.
Martinez, who was previously linked to Real Madrid and Manchester City, scored 16 times in 31 appearances for Antonio Conte during the 2019-20 campaign.
The new 22-year-old agreement in San Siro will continue until June 2023.
