Inter Milan's CEO Giuseppe 'Beppe' Marotta has downplayed the significance of Lautaro Martinez's buyout clause which stands at €111m. The young striker has set the Serie A alight this season and his performances haven't gone unnoticed throughout Europe.
Barça are one of those teams who have reportedly made Lautaro a target next summer. However, Marotta doesn't believe that Inter needs to sell him or any of their star players.
"We're Inter," insisted Marotta. "We're a great team who doesn't need to lose their best players, unless the players themselves want to leave."
On Lautaro specifically: "In his case, the buyout clause doesn't matter. What's important is his wish to develop and improve alongside his teammates," he told Sport Mediaset.
