Gonzalo Higuain would not be surprised if Lautaro Martinez left Inter this summer. ‘It’s hard to say no when Barcelona and Leo Messi call.’

The Juventus forward spoke to Libero about the current form of Argentina international strikers in Europe, so naturally the discussion moved on to Inter hitman Lautaro Martinez.

“It’s a complicated situation, as for example when I was 18 years old and Real Madrid came looking, I didn’t say ‘no thanks.’ You just don’t know what can happen,” said Higuain.

Messi has claimed he doesn’t know about the ins and outs of the negotiations but has praised the compatriot and likened him to Uruguay international Luis Suarez.
