Speaking to Sky Sport Italia, Inter CEO Giuseppe Marotta has admitted he’s hopeful the Serie A club can keep star striker Lautaro Martínez despite being heavily linked with a summer move to Barcelona.

Lautaro Martinez to Barça? It’s normal to be attracted by top clubs like Barça, but we want to keep him and Lautaro never asked to leave the club. So I’m so optimistic, I’m convinced he can stay here also for next season“.
