Negotiations have advanced rapidly, per sources in Italy, with Inter determined to keep the Argentine forward, after Barca did not sign him this summer.

They believe he's a symbol of the present and the future of the club at 23 years old and could still improve a lot.

Beppe Marotta and Piero Ausilio blocked Barca's interest, referring the Catalans to his 111m euro release fee clause, and refusing to lower their valuation of him.

Lautaro is still of interest to Barca, as well as Man City and Real Madrid, and for that reason they will try to tie him down. He gets 2.2m euros a season which will be more than doubled, to 5m euros.

His agents wanted 7.5m euro a season but because of the coronavirus and economic negative effects, they have lowed their asking price to 6.5m euros plus bonuses.

Inter are hopeful the two sides can make a definitive agreement in December, with a new meeting planned for the middle of the month. Inter also want to get rid of the release clause which will kick in again in January. The meeting is dependent on the coronavirus pandemic and if his agents can fly to Italy.
