Lautaro Martinez has had a dream season so far. With Inter, he has taken his team to the finals of UEFA Champions League and has been a top performer for the Nerazzuris this season, along with strike partner Romelu Lukaku, who has equally contributed to the stellar season of Simone Inzaghi’s side. Now, rumors are circling in the market about a possible deal between Real Madrid and the World Cup winner Lautaro for the next season.
Spanish heavyweights looking to bring Lautaro in
Lautaro has had a stellar performance in the World Cup, which Argentina won after a sabbatical of 36 years. Since then, he has been on top for his club, winning two titles in the form of Coppa Italia and the Super Cup. In quest of the treble, where his side faces Pep’s pumped-up Manchester City squad, he might be one of the key players to look out for in the clash of the heavyweights.
Most probably, after the end of the season, Real Madrid will look out to venture for the World Cup winning striker as rumors about the deals and contracts have already been started.
Exit of the hero?
It has been a matter of concern as why is Real looking for a potential forward for the next season. According to recent reports in Spain, Madrid’s main man and Balon D’Or winner Karim Benzema is willing to go out next season. In an unexpected turn of events, if Benzema leaves the heavyweights, then Lautaro might be a potential replacement for the French World Cup winner.
The Frenchman has been heard to consider many offers that he had received from Asia, which might be one of his destinations for the next season.
This information has created a panic in the Spanish capital and the club has no potential replacement in mind, on top of that, finding a first team striker within one month is not going to be easy for Ancelotti’s club.
Heading out since long time?
In the meantime, Lautaro was linked with a move away from the Italian club since many days. But, those moves were not materialized as he continued to play for Inzaghi’s team. And in this season, he has had a dream run, guiding the team to the finals of UEFA Champions League, a feat they have achieved after 13 years. Along with that, he was the driving force behind Inter’s double title wins this season, scoring valuable strikes in the final of Coppa Italia, where Inter edged past Fiorentina 2-1.
The board at Santiago Bernabeu does not want to spend an hefty amount for the star striker for the next season, but can materialize if Carlo Ancelotti ensures a star signing in the number 9 position.
In this season, Lautaro has 21 goals and assisting six of them in 37 games, which might be added if he manages to score in the final of Champions League.
