Barcelona plan €10m a year offer to Inter star Lautaro Martinez

The Liga giants have made the forward their top transfer target, and Goal can exclusively reveal that they will offer huge wages to the Argentine.

Barcelona intends to offer Inter forward Lautaro Martinez a contract worth €10 million (£9m/$11m) a year as they attempt to bring the Argentina international to the Camp Nou, sources close to the deal have confirmed.

Despite the financial uncertainty caused around the world of football by the coronavirus pandemic, Barcelona are working on their number one transfer target.

They want to bring Lautaro to Spain and are willing to offer an eight-figure salary to entice the player over from Serie A.

While an impressive sum, it is also significantly less than the current wages of Luis Suarez, the main striker currently in the Barcelona side. This will allow the club to stay within financial fair play rules, which stipulate they cannot spend more than 70 percent of their annual income on staff salaries.

Lautaro has been in sensational form this season for Inter, scoring 16 goals in 31 appearances before the COVID-19 outbreak paused football across Europe.

This has drawn the attention of the biggest clubs around the continent, however, Barcelona now appears to be at the front of the queue for the player.

Chelsea was also heavily linked with Lautaro, but Goal understands that Borussia Dortmund winger and England international Jadon Sancho is their primary transfer target.

While Chelsea would be in the market for a striker should Olivier Giroud turn down the offer of a new contract and leave Stamford Bridge, it is not currently their top priority.

Real Madrid has also been touted as a destination, with his agent Beto Yaque saying the player has never ruled out moving to Barcelona’s great rivals.

However, Yaque says that Lautaro’s main focus is currently on his football at Inter, rather than any external speculation.
