A new offer for Lautaro Martinez

Barcelona are arranging a final deal offer for Lautaro Martinez. A beleaguered Blaugrana is ready to test Inter’s resolve as they prepare for a life without Luis Suarez leading of their attack. New coach Ronald Koeman recently made it clear to the Uruguayan, although he is close friends with wantaway Lionel Messi. He will no longer be a key player for the Catalans and must try to find a new club. While Lyon striker Memphis Depay has been discussed as a potential successor due to his ties to Koeman. Lautaro remains on Barça’s wishlist. So the Argentine is seen as a complete center-forward in the exact form the club is looking for.

Barca have two choices for Luis Suarez

There are many complications along the way. But the most notable is that Suarez has a year left on his deal at Camp Nou. With automatic renewal for another year if he plays more than 60 percent of matches. Barcelona have two choices: let Suarez stay and watch from the stands until he sees the final season of his current contract. Or pay him a full salary for the 2020-21 season and let him leave as a free agent. Of course, the latter would have seen the sent forward with a clean hiatus. But forking an annual salary of €14 million in one move is far from ideal for the LaLiga side. Their financial problems amid the coronavirus pandemic are well documented.

Juventus has already reached a deal with Suarez

Sources close to the situation have studied that Suarez is ready to sit down with the club and negotiate his exit. However, if president Josep Maria Bartomeu tries to play hardball and try to squeeze the €14 million out of the payout. The 33-year-old will return to training and collect his weekly salary. If both sides reach an agreement, it is implied that Juventus has already reached a deal with Suarez on a three-year contract worth €10 million per season. The striker has already begun the process of obtaining an Italian passport. Barça will try to win back some compensation from Juventus if Suarez makes a move to Turin. Still, the Italian giants have no intention of providing Bartomeu & Co. what would essentially be a handout.

Lautaro, at least initially, would have earned significantly less than Suarez in a year. Another reason the Camp Nou side is keen to bring the 23-year-old Argentine in to lead the club into the future.
