Barcelona and Lautaro Martinez are on the front page of Mundo Deportivo again on Saturday with news that the club will not pay the Inter Milan star’s €111 million release clause.

Martinez is available to buy for €111m for two weeks in July which Barca initially considered to be an acceptable price but that has now changed because of the financial effects on the club of the coronavirus pandemic.

MD report that Martinez remains Barca’s top target but the only way they will be able to bring the Argentina international in is if they include players in the deal.

This time around the names mentioned are Arthur, Arturo Vidal, Carles Alena and Marc Cucurella.

Barca are also said to be a bit worried about the fact Martinez is contracted to the club until 2023 and Inter have absolutely no need to sell.
