Long courted by Barça, Lautaro Martinez flirting with Madrid clubs according to the Iberian media.
Lautaro Martinez is one of the top players who could host the summer transfer window in a few weeks. According to Spanish media, Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid have met with the player’s agent over a possible transfer. Although the player is happy at Inter, Martinez’s agent Alejandro Camano met the two biggest clubs in the Spanish capital this week. A departure of the new Serie A champions won’t be easy, but there are plenty of other top teams watching the scorer’s situation, according to Marca.
The return of the soap opera Lautaro
Barcelona were the favorites to poach the Argentinian from the Nerazzuri last summer, but the club’s financial situation makes any further attempts unlikely. Real Madrid’s top priority for the scoring role is Kylian Mbappé, but that target will not be easy to hit and Martinez appears to be a viable alternative. Atletico are keeping an eye on the Argentinian player as Luis Suarez has the option of leaving at the end of the season. Inter would like to keep their striker, but economic problems could prompt the Lombard leaders to sell to balance the books.
