Inter Milan have made it clear that they only want cash in a deal for Lautaro Martinez. The report comes from Sport, who say Barcelona believe they are on the right track to get Martinez.

However, due to a lack of serious interest from other teams thus far, Barcelona may be forced to be more willing to pay purely cash. It’s been pretty clear thus far that the players Barcelona are willing to offer aren’t the ones that Inter are interested in.

The hope from the Barcelona side is that Inter are actually really interested in Arturo Vidal and just playing coy. If Lautaro makes his request to move to Barcelona official, the leverage changes. Inter may be forced to be willing to discuss a player plus cash deal in that scenario.
