Tuttosport: Milan and Juventus fears could force Inter to insert clause into €111m star’s deal

By Oliver Fisher -

A special clause could be included in the new contract of Inter star Lautaro Martinez to prevent him ever joining Milan or Juventus, a report claims.

According to Tuttosport, Lautaro’s agents Beto Yaqué and Rolando Zarate visited the Inter executives for the third time in the last five months yesterday. This time they had a two-hour of meeting in the afternoon with the Piero Ausilio and the CEO Beppe Marotta to continue the negotiations for his renewal.

The Argentine is seemingly close to signing a contract extension with Inter that would extend the deadline beyond the current on, which is the end of the 2022-23 season.

However, the young forward is not yet close to signing as the Nerazzurri’s owners Suning and the London fund BC Partners are in talks regarding the possible sale of shares in the club; therefore it is impossible for management to formalise contract renewals at this time.

Nonetheless, a deal in principle can be agreed with the former Racing Club star and his €111million release clause will almost certainly remain as his agents want to keep it and Inter have no objections. The outlet adds though that a clause may also be inserted to avoid him moving to Milan and/or Juventus.
