‘Atleti want Lautaro Martinez, but…’

Racing Club say they have rejected a €12.75m bid from Atletico Madrid for young forward Lautaro Martinez.

Reports on Friday suggested Atleti were closing in on a deal to sign Martinez for €12m, but Racing’s President made it clear Los Colchoneros would have to up their offer.

“Atletico Madrid made an offer of €12.75m, plus 10 percent on a future sale, but it was rejected” Victor Blanco told Ole.

Monaco and Borussia Dortmund have also been linked with the 20-year-old, who scored nine goals in a debut 2016-17 campaign for La Academia.
