Spalletti, change formation with Icardi-Martinez up front, it will be worth it
Lautaro Martinez will be more than just a backup to Mauro Icardi. This is what the Gazzetta dello Sport believes as preseason training continues with the first friendly to take place already this Saturday.
The potential of Martinez-Icardi partnership is massive: 107 goals scored at Inter for Icardi in five years and 20 goals in 29 games last year at Racing for Lautaro Martinez. It is worth it to play them together up front, even at the cost of switching to another formation.
Currently, it seems that the go-to formation for Spalletti remains 4-2-3-1. This would leave Lautaro Martinez on the bench because supporting Icardi from behind would be Nainggolan.
