Barca won’t sell Montoya

Barcelona will reportedly look to only loan Martin Montoya out to Inter this summer, rather than sell him.

The Catalans’ defender is understood to be the target of a number of clubs this summer, with Real Betis and Liverpool said to be competing with Italians Inter for his signature.

Montoya, who is seen as open to a move in order to gain first team football in a World Cup year, will reportedly only be made available by his club on loan, say Marca.

Barca apparently still see the 22-year-old as a successor to Dani Alves at full-back and so are not willing to discuss a permanent sale.

This could break any proposed move to Inter, with the Serie A side reportedly not prepared to negotiate for anything less than a purchase of the defender.

Montoya’s current contract with Barcelona expires in June 2014.
