Barcelona will offer Inter Milan series of players to close Lautaro deal

Talks between Barcelona and Inter Milan intermediaries are underway over Lautaro Martinez's transfer.

While the two clubs have taken a step back during the coronavirus suspension, representatives of both have been in talks about trying to set up a deal for the Inter striker.

Before the break, Manchester United, Manchester City and Chelsea had all asked Inter about a price for Lautaro. But everything has since stalled.

Instead, Barca and Inter have been speaking via intermediaries and Sport says the Catalans are willing to offer a raft of players in part exchange. While Lautaro's contract carries a €111m buyout clause, Barca are willing to negotiate terms to the value of €150m.

As such, they will seek an exchange involving several senior players - plus a cash component - in exchange for the Argentine.
