The FC Barcelona follows observing the market in search of an heir for Luis Suárez, that could arrive in the summer of 2020. The Catalans carry several years studying options but without daring to give the step to tie a leading young centre, that now has turned into one of the priorities for the next window estival. One of which more likes is Lautaro Martínez, to the one who know well in the Camp Nou.

The Argentinian is tied by the Inter of Milan until 2023, and the Italians expect that this give the himself to his offer of renewal. His clause of rescission, that activates only a pair of weeks in June, rises to 111 million euros, what brakes, for the moment, to beaux like the Manchester City and the culés. The youngster likes a lot, and according to the program 'The Porteria', of 'Betevé', the sportive managers could commit a grave error with him, since they had him to shot to finals of 2017.

The quoted half concrete that one of the first contacts took place in the expedition that visited the final of the Glass Sudamericana. The technical secretary, Robert Fernández, and his right hand, Urbano Ortega, had in his diary appoint that then they were less known, but that today already are usual between the big public. Vinicius Jr, Lucas Paquetá or Nicolás Tagliafico were in the list of the observers.

Further of the duel between Independent and Flamengo, the club also wanted to see to another perla of Avellaneda, an ariete that played in Racing and that had marked 18 so many in 27 parties. The reports on Lautaro were very positive, and then already stood out his capacity scorer, his speed and a potential that could turn him into a footballer much better. His price, although it was elevated, had not shot , and was planted in 25 million euros.

The interest of the Barça did not go to more, because the then mánager general, Pep Safe, signalled it like a descarte. To the leader seemed him too bajito (measures 1,74 metres; Suárez reaches the 1,82) and without level as to settle in the City Condal. To day of today, although it would be necessary to see it of Barcelona, seems that it made a mistake, because his qualities seem a lot to the ones of the Uruguayan and is one of the feelings in Europe. The prize was for an Inter braver, that six months afterwards pactó with 'The Academy' and fichó to a perla that is multiplying his value.

The difficulties of the Barça to find reinforcements

In plea of the then responsible of the Barça, find and atinar with the reinforcements for the staff is not easy, since along the year study infinity of cases and no all cost to triumph in the Camp Nou. Besides, it is necessary to take into account the competition and the interests crossed of each footballer, something that converts the market in a sea of options to confirm. This yes, given the recent errors, Éric Abidal and his team will have to try improve in this appearance. Take fast decisions finish going out profitable.
