'Barcelona are in the past' - Lautaro set to end transfer talk with new Inter contract

Lautaro Martinez Inter 2020-21

Lautaro Martinez is set to sign a new contract at Inter, and says links with Barcelona are in the past.

Suarez left for Atletico Madrid while Barca, beset with financial problems, were left with Lionel Messi, Antoine Griezmann and Martin Braithwaite as their main central striking options.

“It’s true, I was in negotiations with Barcelona,” Martinez told the Gazzetta dello Sport.

“I was clear with Antonio Conte, I told him: 'I am only thinking about Inter, this is not going to affect me'.

“However, it all belongs in the past.I am going to sign a contract extension with Inter.

“I don’t know when there will be an official announcement. Meanwhile, I play. My future is here, I see myself in Milan for a long time. I like everything about this city. The food, the fans, the team. I only have positive feelings.”

Since joining from Racing Club in 2018, Martinez has emerged as one of the most coveted young forwards in the game.

He impressed last season with 21 goals in 49 games but looks set to surpass that tally in 2020-21, with 15 goals already to his name in 33 matches.

He and Romelu Lukaku have formed one of the most potent attacking partnerships in Europe. Martinez scored twice and Lukaku once in last weekend’s 3-0 derby win over AC Milan, which took Conte’s side four points clear of their city rivals at the top of Serie A.

Barcelona, meanwhile, are third in La Liga, with Messi their only player to have reached double figures for goals so far this season.
