Barcelona have reportedly agreed a deal with Inter Milan’s star striker Lautaro Martinez ahead of the 2020-21 La Liga season.
The Catalan giants have been consistently linked with a move for the Argentinian international as soon as his €111m release clause is activated in July.
Despite still appearing to be some way apart in their valuations of the player, a report from Diario Sport today claims a deal has been agreed, with the 22-year old set to sign a five-year contract.
However, even with a rumoured €12m annual salary accepted by Martinez’s representatives, a deal between the clubs is not agreed.
According to the report, the Italian club are unwilling to reduce their demands for either the full release clause, or €80m plus two players.
Quique Setien is open to a player exchange deal, with Arturo Vidal and Junior Firpo both linked with a switch to the San Siro.
But, La Blaugrana are determined to lower that fee to around €60m, if it means losing two important squad players this summer.
