It’s no longer secret! The Blaugranas are whole heartedly trying to bring the Inter sensation Lautaro Martinez as well their former Brazilian winger Neymar Jr.
Obviously the pursuit of Neymar and Lautaro Martinez continues to make headlines in Spain with the Inter Milan forward once again in the front page news.
Mundo Deportivo has reported that Barcelona believes that it will be easier for them sign the Argentinian this summer than bringing Neymar back to the Camp Nou from Paris Saint-Germain. Both will have high price tags considering the fact how crucial they are for their respective clubs.
Barcelona’s highest priority this summer will be to bring in a replacement for 33-year-old Luis Surarez. Martinez is the “chosen one” by the board and is liked by his captain Leo Messi, he himself also is only keen to move to Barca only.
The 22-year old is far more affordable than Neymar, who is considering one of the bests after Leo and Cristiano. Lautaro currently earns €2m at Inter Milan, while Barca are planning to offer him a lucrative €7m wage.
To have both of them on one side, Neymar will have to lower his wages significantly, considering the current financial crisis of the club, to achieve a move to Barcelona. He is said to aksing a salary of €36m.
MD also reckons the fact that age may play a key factor in Barcelona’s decison. Neymar has turned 28 in February, while Martinez is still only 22, Barca will try to bring both of them but if they have to choose any one of them, the current situation will urge board to bring Lautaro only.
