Lautaro Martinez’s agent, Beto Yaqué, has been talking about the Inter Milan striker and how he thinks the striker finds compliments from Lionel Messi “nice and comforting.”

Messi said in February that he thinks Lautaro is “spectacular” and that he would be happy for him to move to the Camp Nou.

Yaque says the striker is happy to hear such words from Messi:

“For Lautaro it is a great compliment from the best in the world. I think that is very nice and comforting for him.”

Martinez’s agent also spoke about the transfer speculation, with rumors persisting that Barca will sign him this summer.

“He treats it as if it is nothing, because he is only focused on his club. But surely there is great satisfaction knowing that he is doing things well.

“Lautaro has a five-year contract with Inter and the news that comes out is exclusively generated by the press.”
