Inter claim Lautaro move to Barcelona now impossible


Lautaro Martinez Barcelona

Inter sporting director Piero Ausilio has said that Barcelona made an approach forLautaro Martinez but the striker is now "out of the market".

Speculation was rife during thatperiod, with media reports claiming Barca saw Lautaro as a long-term replacement for Luis Suarez.

But such has been the in-house turbulence at Barca over the past couple months, especially after Lionel Messi asked to leave, links between the Catalans and Lautaro have gone quiet.

Lautaro had a release clause in his contract until July but following its expiration, Inter consider the Argentina international to be untransferable.

"There was an approach for the player from Barcelona, ​​but we never started a negotiation," Ausilio told Sky Sport Italia.

"There was a clause that was never triggered and from the day it expired we considered Lautaro out of the market."

Ausiliowas also quick to stress thatMessi would not be moving in the opposite direction.

"You told the truth by saying that there is nothing. I don't know where certain ideas come from,"Ausiliosaid of a move for the Barcelona superstar.

"If we talk about Messi, there is no club that doesn't want to sign him but the reality is different. In the market, we must be careful and smart.

"We know what we have to do. First of all, the exits. Through these, we will finance the newcomers. The opportunities are few and the ones we can take are not so expensive."

But that is not to say Inter will not be doing any business with Barca, asAusilio also expressed an interest in signing midfielder Arturo Vidal.

“We like Arturo Vidal for sure but he’s a Barcelona player right now," he said. "If they’ll let him go under the right conditions, we’ll consider signing him."

Ausilioalso added that another midfielder linked with Inter, Chelsea's N'Golo Kante, would not be arriving at San Siro.
