In times of coronavirus, the focus today is on when clubs will return to activities. But also, with the pass market around the corner, several teams are already thinking about reinforcements.
One of them is Barcelona, which has had Lautaro Martínez in the portfolio for a while and could incorporate it in the next market or at the end of the year. Although there was talk (and a lot) about what could be the biggest transfer of the year, the truth is that both Inter and the Spanish club remain cautious.
The Italian press, however, continues to give some details of the operation and now assured that the Italian team would seek that in the sale there be, in addition to money, some soccer players involved.
Punctually, La Gazzetta dello Sport said that Portuguese winger Nelson Semedo (starter at Barcelona) and midfielder Carles Aleñá (on loan at Betis) are the ones targeted by the Inter leadership. While the first is priced at 32 million euros, the second is valued at 18 million.
For now, we will have to wait to see if the versions are confirmed. Lautaro Martínez's exit clause is 111 million euros although, due to the economic crisis caused by the pandemic, it is very likely that Barcelona should add footballers to their squad as part of the 22-year-old Argentine striker's payment. Will it be given?
