“For a couple of years now Lautaro has shown himself to be a top number nine at Inter and for Argentine,” Kempes informed Italian outlet TuttoMercatoWeb
“I believe that the train only passes once and, beyond the fact that Inter is a great team recognised worldwide, Barça is totally different, playing alongside Messi would be fantastic.”
“If he stays with Inter, it could be a good thing to continue gaining experience, however, if he wants to go to Barcelona and Inter is willing to let him leave for a good figure…”
Messi and Suarez have actually openly stated that they would choose the Argentine making the move to the Camp Nou and the latter has actually confessed that the 22- year-old might change him as the main striker when he leaves the club.
