FC Barcelona looks for a way to reach an agreement with Inter Milan for the signing of Lautaro Martínez. The Catalan team would have already reached an agreement with the player, however it still has the neroazzurro approval for the operation. It will not be easy, because immersed in a serious economic crisis and in full ERTE, the culés lack funds to deal with the signing and Inter does not seem for the work of lowering its economic claims.
Lautaro’s price is set at 110 million of euros. That is their clause and the Italians will not accept an amount below the established one. The financial situation that Barça is going through, after several years of obvious waste, has meant that they cannot afford to sign their main objective for the next market and the most necessary in terms of the future.
The coronavirus crisis has also caused a huge hole in terms of expected revenue. However, the delicate moment in which their accounts pass has not made them give up galactic signings. The blaugranas have had to resort to ERTE to save themselves from bankruptcy, but to resort to an extraordinary measure to the measure has not prevented the already little financial muscle they had from having been further reduced.
One of the formulas the club is studying to get the forward signed is include several of his footballers in the operation. Inter have asked to take several players to make the signing cheaper, without success. The management of the directive as far as salaries are concerned has also left much to be desired and the discards know that if they leave they will have to reduce their salaries and not refuse to leave.
Therefore, although it seems that Lautaro’s will is clear, his arrival at the Camp Nou is still very difficult. It should be remembered that a similar situation was experienced in Can Barça last summer. The Barcelona fans had a principle in accordance with Neymar for his return, which led part of the board to travel to Paris, but the lack of means to face the signing caused them to return from the French capital without the Brazilian star. Something that could be repeated before the next course begins.
