Only he was missing at the scoring party against Brescia – in which Antonio Conte found 6 goals from as many scorers – but to worry Inter more generally is that for too long now Lautaro Martinez seems to be the shadow of himself
. One goal for the Argentine in the last 6 league games
, counting also those before the long stop due to coronavirus, 4 total ones scored in a 2020 in which the extra-field distractions, in primis the rumors about his transfer to Barcelona
, have deprived the Nerazzurri of the player probably more improved than in the past management by the Conte care.EMPTIED
– A first part of the championship and Champions League on very high levels, so as to make the antennas of the blaugrana
of his national teammate Leo Messi, who in him had seen Suarez’s ideal heir. But at that moment something triggered in Lautaro’s head, with his mind projected more towards a not so near future and diverting him from the most imminent commitments with the Inter shirt
, which already in early February – after the last pre-lockdown goal against Cagliari and the expulsion that cost him two rounds of disqualification – she found herself a player emptied, apathetic, often out of the game
. Among the worst in the clashes against Lazio and Juve, also negative in the first match after the second half, against Napoli in the Italian Cup, and only one goal – the one against Sampdoria – which cannot be enough to lessen the attempt of a perky Sanchez of unseat him from the starting position alongside Lukaku.
THE CLAUSE EXPIRES – Tuesday 7 July the period in which the interested teams, therefore Barcelona, can exercise the right to snatch him from Inter by paying the 111 million euro termination clause. Once this limit has been crossed, the Argentine footballer has the possibility to start a negotiation to extend the contract expiring in 2023 or can start only under the conditions dictated by Marotta and Ausilio. The left-handed Junior Firpo (the only technical counterpart taken into consideration by the Nerazzurri) left the scene after the acceleration for Emerson Palmieri, the minimum amount required to free Lautaro is 90 million euros. An important price, which would allow Inter to continue a strengthening campaign that, after the blitz for Hakimi, involves the arrival of at least two players in the middle of the field (Tonali plus another), a left-handed outsider and important alternatives for the attack. Shots that could be financed right from the departure of the ex Racing, as long as Barcelona find the resources to sink in the coming weeks.
