I had a discussion with Messi about joining Barcelona - Lautaro Martinez

I had a discussion with Messi about joining Barcelona - Lautaro Martinez

Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez has revealed he was close to signing for Barcelona but the club's financial problem at that time stopped the deal from happening.

Lautaro Martinez who has now the Scudetto 'Serie A champion' with Inter Milan also revealed he had a discussion with Barcelona club Lionel Messi concerning the move but Barcelona just couldn't afford the deal.

"I was really close to Barcelona," Lautaro said while speaking with ESPN Argentina.

"I had discussed with Lionel Messi, but they had financial problems and I decided to stay."

Martinez also revealed how happy he is to have stayed at Inter and to have won the Serie A with them this season claiming it has always been his dream.



"I've dreamt of this since I was a child," Lautaro added

"I think I was right to stay, because I've won a title.

"I've dreamt of having a family and winning titles, and now I have that."

Barcelona might be coming back for Lautaro Martinez as they will like to strengthen their squad during the summer.

Another player they are considering is Messi's friend Sergio Kun Agüero of Manchester City. Agüero already revealed he won't be playing at Manchester City next season but his destination is yet to be known and a move to Barcelona is likely to happen as Messi will be a big influence.
