Lautaro Martinez refused the opportunity to sign for Real Madrid during his time at Racing Club, according to the Argentinian side’s president Victor Blanco.
Racing Club president Victor Blanco has actually declared that Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez declined the opportunity to sign up with Real Madrid as a youngster.
Martinez made the switch from Argentinian side Racing to Italian giants Inter in 2018 and has actually been a huge success at San Siro.
The 22- year-old has actually scored 16 times this season, form which has actually seen him linked with the likes of Manchester City, Barcelona and Madrid.
According to Blanco, however, Martinez has actually currently refused the chance to sign for Los Blancos as soon as in the past.
“They came looking for him from Real Madrid and offered a loan with a significant purchase option,” he informed Mundo Deportivo.
“However, he rejected that possibility because he wanted to succeed in Racing before going outside. And he stayed. It did not cloud. He was very clear about his goals.”
Argentina international Martinez is rumoured to have a release provision of simply under ₤100 m in his Inter contract.
