Barcelona set to end pursuit of Lautaro Martínez

Barcelona set to pull the plug on Lautaro Martínez's potential transfer

July 6, 2020 By Oscar Rojas
The player's demands and Inter's desire to keep the player around have forced Los Culés to end all negotiations to sign the striker.

One of the potential transfer sagas of the summer will not take place at all, as Barcelona will reportedly not continue their pursuit of Lautaro Martínez.

The Argentine striker has been linked all season long to a big-money move to Camp Nou Stadium, but Barcelona's ailing finances and Inter's refusal to include players in the negotiation have forced Los Culés to walk away from the negotiation.

Martínez is under contract with Inter, but the existance of a buyout clause seemed to pave the way for a deal. Unfortunately for Los Culés, the club cannot pay the €111M clause (around $125M), especially after the coronavirus pause.

In order to facilitate the deal, Barcelona planned to include two players in the deal, but Inter turned down all proposals by the Blaugrana side. On top of that, Lautaro's buyout clause expires in the next few days, which will surely complicate things even further for the Spanish side.

Once the Spanish team has decided not to pay the buyout clause, Inter will take steps to assure Martínez is set to stay at the Giuseppe Meazza for quite a while. The club is willing to offer the player a contract extension and a wage increase, which will see the Argentine teaming up with Romelu Lukaku beyond this campaign.
