Agent: ‘No reason for Lautaro Martinez to leave Inter’

Although Romelu Lukaku and Paulo Dybala are in talks with Inter, the agent of Lautaro Martinez assures the Argentina international ‘has no reason to think there is the slightest possibility he could leave.’

The Nerazzurri are in the process of revamping their squad after missing out on the Scudetto by two points, but winning the Coppa Italia and Supercoppa Italiana.

With Lukaku trying to force through a return from Chelsea and Dybala’s agent meeting with Inter at their headquarters yesterday afternoon, this raises questions on Lautaro’s future.

“At this moment, he has no reason to think there is even the slightest possibility he could leave Inter,” Alejandro Camano told FCInterNews.it.

“Nobody has told us anything, the truth is that a player who scores this many goals in Serie A cannot be ignored, but he has four years left on his contract.

“He is happy, is enjoying his time with the team, the club and the city. There’s no reason to leave. We know that professional football is like that, it can all change tomorrow, but as of today this is the situation.

“We don’t know what the future holds in football, but Lautaro believes playing for Inter is something splendid and many players would love to be in his shoes. Lautaro is not thinking about some hypothetical next destination, but to the next season, where he wants to win everything with Inter.”

Barcelona had been close to signing Lautaro Martinez a couple of years ago, but since then he has committed firmly to the Nerazzurri.

“When we sat down to discuss the contract renewal, it was not thinking of a future sale, but of the next goal, the next game, Serie A and the Champions League,” added the agent.

“It is not a contract structured for an Inter sale, but to be happy at Inter. What matters for Lautaro is happiness with his family and his club. The transfer value is not as important to me as seeing his smile.”

The Argentina international has certainly put down roots in Milan, this week opening a new restaurant.

Inter have also qualified for the Champions League, something that clubs vying for his signature like Arsenal and Manchester United cannot say.

He signed the new contract in October 2021 and it runs to June 2026, by which point he would’ve been at San Siro for eight years.

The 22-year-old scored 25 goals with four assists in 49 competitive games for the Nerazzurri this season.
