REVEALED: Barcelona face deadline to meet Lautaro buyout clause

Time is ticking on Barcelona's chances of signing Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

The two clubs have been in marathon negotiations over the Argentina international, whose deal carries a €111m buyout clause.

In Italy, it's claimed the option will expire on July 7, which would then allow Inter to price the striker out of a move away.

However, Sport says inside Barca, there's a confidence the clause doesn't run out until July 15 - so giving them an extra week to find a deal. Either way, Barca know time is running out on closing an agreement for Lautaro.

Inter are demanding either Barca meet the player's clause in it's entirety, or make a cash-plus-players offer the equivalent of the €111m option.
