Real Madrid are confident they can convince Lautaro Martínez to join them instead of FC Barcelona, and are threatening to make a push for the Inter Milan star, according to a new report.

The Argentine only wants Barcelona, but the capital club is hoping they can change his mind. At the moment, while there have been rumors of a strong negotiation between Inter and the Catalans for the striker, no deal has been reported.

Real Madrid may see an opening to make a push for him, especially if they cannot bring Kylian Mbappé from Paris Saint-Germain. Or they may simply be trying to put pressure on the Blaugrana. The Catalan club is the strong favorite to land Lautaro, in any case.
