Agent: "Conte cannot wait to work with Lautaro. Messi wants him at Barcelona? Bring Messi to Inter then..."
After being decisive at this past Copa America, Lautaro Martinez is ready to be more and more involved in the Inter project. Currently, the Argentinian is enjoying much deserved vacation but “he cannot wait to start working with Conte.” Those are the words of Beto Yaque, agent, who speaks to FCIN about the present and future.
Have you heard from Lautaro after Copa America?
“Certainly. We also saw each other since I went to pick him up at the airport before his well-deserved vacation. He was happy on how things went and how he was very welcomed by the group. Although he was disappointed with how the game against Brazil ended.”
Messi’s words are further proof of important appreciation that he has not only within the national team but in Argentina.
“Being praised by the best in the world is beautiful and very satisfying. Lautaro was extremely happy to hear it. These words gave him happiness and even more desire to work even harder to improve, to learn new things and aim to achieve the goals that he has set for himself one day.”
In Spain, they are saying that Barcelona want your client.
“Lautaro only thinks about Inter. He is happy to be an Inter player and dreams big. Conte called him to tell him how he likes to work and that he relies on him and he is very to have Lautaro on the team. The it’s true that Barcelona are interested but no one has contacted us officially. They are rumors that we happen to know to be the true. But I repeat: Lautaro stays in Milan. Let’s end it with a joke: if Messi wants to play with Martinez, then bring him to Inter. Let’s hope. It would be great for Inter if that happened…”
Will he have more chance to play?
“Conte didn’t tell him that he would be starter, only that he counts on him, adding that he likes him as a player and wants to work with him. The player is looking forward to being available to the coach. He is excited about this new chapter. Now, let him enjoy the beach and vacation, he’ll come back with fully recharged batteries for the new season.”
How do you see the possible arrivals of Lukaku and Dzeko? Even with Icardi gone, there will be a lot of competition to step on the pitch.
“I believe there must always be healthy competition. I know perfectly well that Inter are negotiating with strikers of enormous abilities, but I believe blindly in Lautaro’s ability and in what he can give. He is prepared to compete and the pitch will tell us who deserves to play. A new season is about to begin, with new important goals. We only hope that this Serie A season to be better than the last. The world now knows who Lautaro is. And we, just like him, cannot wait for the start of the season. We can take away a lot of satisfaction.”
