Despite the constant claims from the agent of Inter’s Lautaro Martínez that his client doesn’t want to leave the Serie A club, the idea that Tottenham could come back for a new attempt refuses to disappear.
Already coming forward with an offer that varies from €70m to €85m+ depending on the source, Spurs were turned away by the Italians, who don’t want to make another big sale after already upsetting their fans with the departures of Romelu Lukaku and Achraf Hakimi.
Despite all this, Gazzetta dello Sport believe Fabio Paratici could come back, saying as much in an article looking at the current renewal talks between the player and Inter.
It’s explained Martínez ‘wants to become the highest paid of Simone Inzaghi’s squad’ with a wage of €7m/year, while the Serie A club are only offering €5m/year.
That’s why ‘more meetings and goodwill will be needed to get closer’.
Regarding an exit, the agent’s interviews suggest the striker ‘will not suffer the charm of either Simeone’s Atlético Madrid, which has already offered €70m, nor the possible relaunch of Tottenham, ready to approach €90m’.
The belief is Martínez will stay regardless of what is put in front of the Inter board regardless of whether a renewal agreement is struck.
Then again, they said the exact same thing about Lukaku, who also came out and said he would be staying at San Siro.
