Zanetti: "Here is how we signed Lautaro Martinez. Icardi? He is happy here, behaving like a true captain"
Speaking to Fox Sports Argentina, Javier Zanetti revealed the behind the scenes of Lautaro Martinez’s arrival at Inter.
“We were convinced that Atletico Madrid would go ahead and close the deal for him but when we discovered that there was a chance, we started working on it. We spoke with his agents in Milan and then there was a trip to Argentina by Piero Ausilio in the evening where he, unfortunately, scored a hattrick. Unfortunately because at that point we knew that his price would be skyrocketed. And the truth is that Racing and Lautaro always showed us their great availability. I am very happy because we strongly wanted Lautaro.”
Few words on Icardi. “He is staying at Inter. He is doing very well here. As soon as the market ends, we will negotiate the extension and offer him a new contract. He is very happy with us. He has been the club captain for two years and is behaving like one. He called Lautaro and is the first to explain Inter to the newcomers. He is a great professional.”
