LAUTARO MARTINEZ NEWS:-
Hristo Stoichkov believes that Lautaro Martinez will learn a lot in Barcelona. The Inter star player is heavily linked with the Former La Liga Champions(Barcelona).
The Argentinian international is all set to leave inter for Barcelona to accompany his national teammate Lionel Messi. The signing would be very crucial for Barcelona as they think Lautaro as a long term replacement for Barcelona forward Luis Suarez.
Lautaro scored 16 goals in 31 games for Inter Milan prior to the Covid-19 Pandemic. Coronavirus Pandemic stopped all leagues and tournaments from all over the world.
Hristo Stoichkov played 217 games for Barca in which he scored 114 goals winning five La Liga titles and the Uefa Champions League.
Stoichkov told Tyc Sports “Martinez has great ability.
“He’s going to learn a lot in Barcelona. He has a great teacher like Luis Suarez who can help him out to understand things. And he will have a good understanding and compatibility with Messi, Griezmann, and Dembele.
“He likes to compete a lot at the professional level, not just score goals. He’s growing and improving every day. I think he’s proving that this year.
“The question is not whether he can play or not, the important thing is to compete and make his place in the team. He has to train hard, he has to get into this style of play. I spent eight years at Barcelona playing both left and right [wing].
“Everyone is a substitute and a starter; it depends on how you train every day and how much effort you do during the week.”
There are different perspectives for different people on Martinez should switch Inter for Barcelona, however, Fabio Capello warning the Argentina international star player that he would be a substitute if he leaves Inter for Barcelona.
Capello told El Larguero. “Lautaro Martinez is a very good player, He has everything that football player has – a lot of quality, very fast moves and also he’s very good when he shoots on goal.
“Going to Barcelona and becoming a starter with Luis Suarez it would be very difficult. I think it is better to be a starter at Inter than a substitute at Barcelona.”
Racing’s president of youth football Adrian Ruben Fernandez recently revealed that Messi has called Lautaro to join him at Barcelona alongside him and believes a switch will happen very soon as they prioritize Lautaro as a long time replacement for Luis Suarez.
Fernandez told Sport “Messi called him and wants him to join Barcelona soon, I have no doubt, For that reason, the deal to sign him is almost there.
“I know things will go well in Barcelona and that Lautaro will be an excellent replacement for Luis Suarez as the quality that he possesses as a player He’s the ideal heir. Thanks to Barca he will continue to grow as a player and a man.”
