Report: River starlet wants Milan

River Plate and Argentina defender Lucas Martinez Quarta has reportedly issued a come-and-get-me plea to Milan.

Martinez is considered one of Argentina’s brightest defensive prospects after helping River win the Copa Libertadores last season and recently breaking into the national team.

Now, according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, the 23-year-old turned down a move to Villarreal as he “strongly wants” Milan and has even offered himself to the Rossoneri.

Barcelona eye Lautaro release clause

Barcelona’s interest in Lautaro Martinez means the €111m release clause is no longer a safety net for Inter, claim reports.

The 22-year-old Argentine is increasingly mentioned as a candidate for the Blaugrana, recommended by Lionel Messi.

He scored within two minutes at Camp Nou in their recent Champions League encounter, while he now has nine goals in 14 senior caps for his country.

According to Tuttosport, considering the general cost of talented forwards in Europe now, his €111m release clause might be seen as a bargain.

Tension in Argentina victory

Argentina beat Ecuador 6-1 in a friendly match, with Fiorentina defender German Pezzella on target, but Lautaro Martinez had a moment of tension.

The Seleccion were already 2-0 up when they were awarded a penalty and it wasn’t clear who was meant to take it.

Inter striker Lautaro Martinez and Leandro Paredes both wanted the ball, so eventually Udinese midfielder Rodrigo De Paul intervened to calm the situation down.

Paredes eventually won and converted successfully, which saw him hug Lautaro during the celebration.

Maradona drops seven Gimnasia players

Diego Maradona has sensationally dropped seven of his first-team players as he looks to end Gimnasia La Plata’s miserable run of form.

Maradona was hired by Gimnasia to great fanfare last month, but he has so far been unable to unrest the club’s poor run of form, overseeing three straight defeats.

In a bid to shake things up, The Sun reports the Napoli icon has demoted as many as seven players to the reserves - Jonathan Chacon, Guillermo Enrique, Lucas Miguez, Juan Cataldi, Khalil Caraballo, Eric Ramirez and Lucas Calderon.
