Lautaro Martinez’s agent has reiterated that the striker is happy at Inter but admitted “who wouldn’t like to play with Lionel Messi?”
Martinez’s prolific form this season and €111m release clause has seen him linked with the likes of Barcelona and Manchester City, but Beto Yaque once more refused to entertain the idea of him leaving Inter.
“So many people have called me from Spain, England and Italy,” he told 947 FM Radio.
“We read comments and rumours in the press, but we don’t know anything. He’s fine where he is.
“If I said I knew something about it, I’d be lying. He just wants to play football and score goals. We haven’t talked about a transfer to another club or his contract with Inter.
“We talk to various people from other teams and, out of respect for them, we’ve met them and got to know each other, but none of it’s been formal.”
Messi had been linked with a shock move to Inter before the No 10 killed off the speculation...
“Who wouldn't like to play with Messi? Lautaro is very reserved, he keeps a low profile.
“It wouldn't surprise me if the big clubs wanted him: this is football, the market exists.”
