Lautaro Martinez chooses Inter
Racing Club striker Lautaro Martinez, a reported transfer target for Real Madrid and Atletico Madrid, has confirmed he will join Inter.
The 20-year-old was linked to a host of top European clubs while reports in December had suggested he had agreed terms with Diego Simeone’s side, but he now looks set for a move to Milan.
“Everything is sorted with Inter,” Martinez told TyC Sports.
“I will be in Milan from June, this is my future and it is a big jump for me, but all that is missing now to complete the deal is my medical with the club.
“Inter came to Buenos Aires to try and persuade me to join them, and this had an impact on me while Javier Zanetti phoned me a lot, which meant a lot to me.
