Argentina coach Lionel Scaloni has been talking about Lautaro Martinez’s potential move to Barcelona and think he will have to make sacrifices to be a starter at Barcelona.
There’s been plenty of talk about a summer move from Inter Milan with Martinez expected to be Luis Suarez’s long-term replacement at Barca.
Scaloni thinks if he does make the move then Quique Setien will want him in his starting XI.
“If Lautaro gets to go to Barcelona, I think the coach is going to look for a way to start him, he is going to have to sacrifice and earn his place,” he said.
“Taking Lautaro out of Inter is not going to be easy… I would like Lautaro Martinez to play, to have continuity.
“Lautaro has one thing that he runs for him and for his team-mate. He will be the reference striker for the future.”
