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.
