Barcelona find Lautaro (& Firpo) breakthrough in talks with Inter Milan

Barcelona have found a breakthrough in talks with Inter Milan for Lautaro Martinez.

Barca have convinced Inter of their valuation for Junior Firpo.

Mundo Deportivo says after initially rejecting Barca's price of €41m for Firpo, Inter have now had a rethink and come around to accepting the valuation.

Inter are still insisting Lautaro only leave for his €111m buyout clause, even with the option having expired.

But Barca will now be encouraged by the prospect of committing €70m cash to the deal, rather than the initial €90m - plus players - the Nerazzurri had been seeking.

Barca and Inter will resume negotiations once the seasons in Spain and Italy have concluded.
