Inter CEO Marotta: Snubbing Barcelona would benefit Lautaro Martinez

Lautaro Martinez should snub FC Barcelona this summer, says Internazionale CEO Beppe Marotta. According to the Inter director, Martinez would benefit if he decides to delay a move to the Spanish giants. Martinez is considered a leading player at Inter and according to Moratta that could benefit striker’s career in the long run.

“Lautaro has not shown the slightest desire to leave,” Marotta told DAZN. “Aside from dates and deadlines, the clearest situation is that Inter do not want to sell their champions or interesting young talents. If the player were to ask to leave, we would evaluate that together, but so far, that request has not arrived.”

“I believe that, being a young player, it can boost his career to continue playing for a while longer at Inter. Being an Inter player means being part of a big club and that ought to be reason enough for him to feel proud.” Martinez has made 36 appearances for Inter this season, scoring 17 goals and providing 5 assists.
