Inter move to lock down Lautaro

Lautaro Martinez’s release clause expires on Tuesday and Inter hope that’ll be the trigger for him to shun Barcelona and sign a new, improved contract.

The Argentine has a clause worth €111m in his current deal, but it can only be activated by July 7 by clubs outside of Italy.

As Barca are struggling financially in the post-COVID landscape, they have been unable to offer the full amount, while Inter have no intention of negotiating the figure down.

Alves 'convinced Arthur of Juve'

Dani Alves reportedly helped convince Arthur Melo to leave Barcelona for Juventus after the midfielder’s initial cold shoulder.

The exchange deal involving Arthur and Miralem Pjanic finally went through last week, but obtaining the Brazilian’s approval proved difficult as he fought to stay at Camp Nou.

Now, ESPN claims Alves was one of the keys to the move happening thanks to ‘a series of phone calls’, where the right-back explained he would have ‘a bigger role to play’ in Turin.
