Despite recently being linked with a move to a host of clubs, including to Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur, Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez is set to reject any opportunities to leave the Nerazzurri in favour of extending his stay.
That’s according to Marotta, the CEO of the Serie A champions, who has confirmed the South American forward wishes are to remain in Milan.
Inter CEO Marotta confirms Lautaro won’t join Tottenham: “Lautaro Martinez has decided to stay at Inter, he strongly wants to stay also with many clubs approaching us with official bids to sign Lautaro. We’re so proud”, he told DAZN. ? #Inter #THFC
