Lionel Messi apparently desires Barcelona to prioritise a reunion with Neymar over trying to sign Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez.
Lionel Messi would apparently choose Barcelona to favour finalizing Neymar over Lautaro Martinez during the next transfer window.
While the Catalan giants have actually been greatly linked with both players, the coronavirus pandemic will reasonably ensure that just one of the forwards can be signed later on in 2020.
Although club authorities see Inter Milan‘s Martinez as a long-lasting replacement for Luis Suarez, a report in Cadena Ser recommends that Messi desires to be reunited with Neymar.
A Barcelona source is stated to have actually informed the radio station: “If he had to choose between Lautaro and Neymar, it’s obvious Leo Messi prefers the Brazilian.”
In Spite Of Neymar having simply over 2 years left on his contract at Paris Saint-Germain, the attacker is most likely to expense considerably more money than Martinez.
Much might depend upon whether Barcelona are able to raise the required funds through player sales.
