Lautaro Martinez has reportedly told Barcelona he’s willing to wait until next year to move to the Camp Nou from Inter Milan.

According to Mundo Deportivo, the Argentine is totally committed to joining the Catalan giants and not interested in renewing with the Nerazzurri.

Yet Martinez is also said to be aware of the club’s current financial difficulties and, although it’s not ideal, is ready to play another season at Inter before heading to Barcelona.

The 23-year-old has faced a bit of criticism recently after hitting a dry patch in front fo goal after lockdown but scored a fine goal in Inter’s 2-0 win over Napoli on Tuesday.

His celebration is likely to get people talking too.
