The last image that comes back when we think of Lautaro Martinez today is his verbal altercation Wednesday night during the Inter-Roma match (3-1) with Antonio Conte, during his replacement. The two men then laughed about it as they simulated a boxing match in training. But on the pitch, the Argentine striker was a big asset to get the Scudetto: sixteen goals and eight assists in 36 Serie A matches.
Nerazzurri supporters therefore necessarily have all these moments in mind as well, and above all. However, the 23-year-old player was not sure of staying because FC Barcelona wanted him last summer. A story on which the number 10 interist has returned to Sky Italia : “I was close to Barcelona, that’s how it is, and I had also spoken to Messi. After that, I had to make a choice and I chose to stay here and I didn’t make a mistake. ”
“I am very happy to be at Inter”
But after a successful season, the Bahía Blanca native is still at the heart of the transfer window rumors. FC Barcelona, Real Madrid, extra time? Everything seemed possible for Lautaro Martinez. But this time, the main concern was direct. “I am very happy to be at Inter, even more after this Scudetto which has been missing for so many years. We are having an amazing time and I can’t think of anything other than being here. Then, what concerns the renewal or the clauses is settled with my lawyer and that’s it “, dropped the Argentinian.
With a contract running until June 2023, Lautaro Martinez could therefore extend in the coming weeks. Especially since in his interview with the transalpine media, the Argentine mentioned next season in Milan: “Maybe in Serie A, the detail does not move a match but in the Champions League, where there are the best, the detail makes the difference and we have to improve in this area. This will be the step that will make the difference. ” Because after an exercise crowned with a league title but also marked by a sad elimination in the group stage of C1, Inter will try to do better in 2021/22. And therefore normally with his Argentinian striker.
