Xavi: 'Barca right to want Lautaro'

Xavi Hernandez maintains Inter striker Lautaro Martinez would be an ideal signing for his old club. “I like him, Barcelona are right to be interested.”

The Blaugrana legend spoke to DJMariio on YouTube Channel Post United and was asked about the on-going transfer links.

“I like him,” said Xavi. “He gets away from defenders well, provides passing options, can play well in open or tight spaces. Barcelona are right to be interested in signing him.”

Lautaro Martinez has a release clause worth €111m in his Inter contract, which can only be exercised for a brief period in July.

Another alternative mentioned for Barcelona is the return of Neymar from Paris Saint-Germain.

“Why not? I shared a locker room with him and he seems a good person. He was professional and made the difference for the team at that time,” noted Xavi.

“I don’t want to get into club issues, but on the field he is one of the top five in the world.”
