Former Roma director Monchi ‘turned down’ the chance to sign Lautaro Martinez from Racing Club in January 2018 for €8m, revealed an agent.
The striker eventually joined Inter for €25m in July that year, and is now part of a bidding war with Barcelona, Manchester United, Chelsea and Real Madrid at €111m.
“I had offered Lautaro Martinez to Roma in January 2018 for €8m,” agent and intermediary Luis Ruzzi told Tuttomercatoweb.
