Already it does several months that the FC Barcelona decanted by Lautaro Martínez, star of the Inter of Milan, like relief generacional for Luis Suárez in the Barcelona forward. The 'gunman' Uruguayan is 33 years old and the 'bull' Argentinian has 22, in addition to a big ambition and ones win crazy for sharing changing room with Leo Messi. But, by the moment, seems that there will be signing.

According to the informations published this Friday by The Avant-garde, Josep Maria Bartomeu, president of the FC Barcelona, has ordered to paralyse the negotiations for the signing of Lautaro Martínez. The Inter of Milan thinks to take out the maximum economic profit by the sale of the international albiceleste, by what will ask a tremendously elevated price to the that the Catalan club will not be able to access if before it does not attain important sales.

Until the past month of July, Lautaro Martínez had fixed in his agreement a clause of 111 million euros. A figure to which the FC Barcelona could not arrive before half of month, that was when it won the term to execute it. Thus, now the Inter of Milan is free to fix the price that want by his star, something that puts to the Catalan team in a stage something peliagudo to tackle the operation.

Therefore, Josep Maria Bartomeu would not reactivate the arrival of Lautaro Martínez until the FC Barcelona do not achieve 'plant' to some of his transferibles. This goes of footballers of half cost as they can be Samuel Umtiti, Jean-Clair Todibo, Rafinha Alcántara or Carles Aleñá to big sales as they could be the ones of Ousmane Dembélé or Philippe Coutinho.

The FC Barcelona has lost 200 millions

The losses of the FC Barcelona like consequence of the coronavirus and of the arrest of the football during three months like consequence of the pandemia have enciphered the losses of the Catalan club in 200 million euros, leaving the budget foreseen for the next season in 800 'kilos', a forecast of 300 millions less than the estimated in a stage prepandemia, that was of 1100.

It is thus that the economy culé is not as to do titanic efforts by any player. If the FC Barcelona attains to sell to Ousmane Dembélé, to Philippe Coutinho or to other transferibles, maybe can speak of Lautaro Martínez​. If it does not give this stage, the Barcelona club will have to park the arrival of the crack of the Inter of Milan, like minimum, to 2021.
