The club according to SunSport and Football Italia reports that the current Italian League champions are going through a financial crisis and they want to offload some of their top stars.

This was the main reason Conte parted ways with them after helping them win their first league title in a decade.

Meanwhile, the return of Joan Laporta as president of Barcelona has led to new reports that the Argentine could head to Spain this summer with his agent, Alejandro Camano saying:

“No one from Barcelona has called me. I have a good relationship with Mateu [Alemany], but there is nothing, so we are not thinking about it now.

“He is prepared for any challenge. Lautaro is a player who does not go unnoticed and can face any responsibility.”

Sources reveal that the attacker currently earns about £1.7m a year at Inter and they will not listen to offers less than £73m for their striker.

Barcelona linked with a move for Martinez

Legit.ng earlier reported that Barcelona could be planning to make a move for Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez if they fail to seal a deal for Erling Haaland this summer.

The Catalans lost Luis Suarez to Spanish League rivals Atletico Madrid after the arrival of Ronald Koeman last August.

However, the financial crisis caused by the deadly coronavirus has denied the Nou Camp outfit a chance to secure the services of another top star.
