Lautaro Martinez could sign a new deal with Inter, according to his representative, because the striker has no desire to go for another team. WHAT OCCURED?
Martinez is in his sixth season at Inter and is under contract through 2026. In the summer, his strong performances for the Serie A giants attracted reports of interest from Real Madrid and Chelsea, as well as clubs in Saudi Arabia. THE LARGER IMAGE
Martinez, 26, has gotten off to a fast start for Inter this season. He has now scored six goals in seven Serie A and Champions League appearances, and such numbers will almost certainly result in other offers from around Europe and Saudi Arabia.
His agent, Alejandro Camano, maintains that the striker will reject any offers in order to stay at San Siro, like he did during the summer transfer window. HOW THEY SAID IT
“Lautaro is only interested in hearing Inter.” “Saudi Arabia is a market full of temptations, and we’ve had many proposals from there, but not only,” Camano told TV Play. “When I tell him about these possibilities, he says, ‘Inter ale, Inter’.” A sense of belonging is crucial, and he has plenty of it here. Lautaro listened to nothing but Inter when it came to the idea and the team.”
“This summer, the entire world discussed a possible transfer to another team, but the reality is that he decided to stay because he likes peace of mind and considers Inter to be his team,” he continued. He is content, he is the captain of the squad, and he is also expecting a child; we must try to ensure that he is always content. Renewal, I believe, is a possibility. We discussed it with both Inter and Lautaro… He turned down several opportunities because he wanted to stay at Inter.”
WHAT COMES NEXT?
The Argentina international is expected to play against Salernitana in Serie A on Saturday. On Tuesday, they will play in the Champions League against Benfica.
