Agent of Lautaro Martinez cools Inter Milan exit talk

The agent of Lautaro Martinez says he's staying with Inter Milan.

Martinez has been linked with Real Betis.

But Beto Yaque told FCInterNews.it: "He's always been happy. Then of course, like any footballer when he doesn't play, let's say he was a bit agitated.

“Perhaps it was because he felt he could take to the field, but now he's calmed down.

“He's happy in Milan and he's hoping for a prosperous 2019 for him and Inter, so we can categorically deny that he'll move to Betis.

“Lautaro has a five-year contract with the Nerazzurri, where he's happy, and he doesn't want to leave. He'll stay in Milan.

“He never thought about asking for a loan move away. He felt the lack of minutes, yes, but he also felt the affection and faith of the fans, club and his teammates.

“Therefore I repeat, he's never, ever thought about leaving Inter. He was very happy about scoring the winner against Napoli. It was what he needed and it took the weight off him.

“We were aware that he needed a period to adapt to Italian football, but I knew he would from the first day we got to this beautiful country."
