Chelsea and Man United target Lautaro Martinez opens up on Inter Milan future

Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez says he is happy with the Italian side amid reports linking him with a move away from San Siro. 

Martinez has attracted history from a number of clubs across Europe including the likes of Manchester United, Liverpool, and Chelsea. The 23-year-old signed for Milan in the summer of 2018 for a reported fee of £22.5million from the Argentine side Racing Club. 

The Argentine came close to joining Barcelona last summer but a deal failed to materialize and the forward says he has no regrets. 

"Barcelona? Yes, it is true, it was a concrete possibility," he told El Libero.

"But we ended the season late, and there were also the COVID problems so I decided to stay. I’m telling you, thankfully! It was the right decision! Atletico Madrid and Borussia Dortmund wanted me, but one day I spoke with Ausilio, Zanetti, and Milito."

"I understood that Milano was the perfect solution for me, the right city in the right moment. And I didn’t make a mistake, I liked everything from the first day, the club, the fans."

Relationship with Conte

"Conte? I like him but even if he leaves, I’m an Inter player and I will continue to work for Inter," he added.

"It is clear to me the moment we’re living, we will talk to the club and find a solution. We will have to understand altogether."

"It is not true that we are angry about the salaries, we are very relaxed, we are concentrated on the pitch."

The 23-year-old has netted 16 goals while providing eight assists in the Serie A this season.
