Former Inter Milan midfielder Wesley Sneijder has advised that the Lautaro Martinez should stay at Inter and focus on being successful rather than going to Barca on the summer transfer window. Martinez has been highly linked with a move to Barcelona and many have advocated his decision to go and some have suggested him to avoid the transfer. Messi has been strongly supporting on his arrival to Barcelona. In this season he has scored 12 goals and assisted three goals with 22 matches for the club.
Sneijder who has played in Ajax, Real Madrid, Galatasaray, and some other clubs advises that it is too soon for a young a player like him and he should focus on the current club.

Former Juventus striker Nicola Amoruso believes Lautaro Martinez has already made the decision to join Barcelona at the end of the season. The Argentine is currently in his second campaign with Inter Milan where he has caught the eye with 16 goals and four assists across all competitions. The Blaugrana have been long-term admirers of the striker’s services and it appears that they are prepared to make a formal approach to sign him this summer.
Amidst this, Amoruso feels it would be hard for anyone to resist the prospect of playing alongside Lionel Messi, he told: “Lautaro? It all depends on him. If he has decided to go and play with Messi, there is little to do. We could talk about how it’s one of those choices that change your life. Inter are also building well, but it will still take a few years before they will reach the top. I’m convinced that Lautaro has already decided to go, there’s a player’s career at stake, he’d join a team that’s always fighting to win, dominating.”

Slovakian footballer Milan Skriniar has said that he had no second thoughts in joining Inter Milan when they made the approach to sign him three years ago. The centre-back was pursued by the Nerazzurri from Sampdoria in the summer of 2017 and he has since gone on to establish himself as one of the most-sought defenders in European football.
His consistent performances have caught the eye of Barcelona and Manchester United over the past few seasons but Skriniar is clearly satisfied with the proceedings at San Siro, he told: “As soon as I heard rumours during the U21 European Championship I was flattered. Accepting Inter was an easy choice and I didn’t have to think twice about it.

Former Inter Milan star Andreas Brehme has said that Inter Milan are playing well at the moment and they need to build a winning run in order to keep up in the title pursuit. The Nerazzurri have gone neck-to-neck with Juventus for the league title this campaign but they have recently dropped to the third position after an away defeat at Lazio.
Still, they are only three points behind the Bianconeri at the top of the standings and club favourite Brehme believes the Nerazzurri must pick up three points from the Sampdoria game to stay in touch in the title race, he told: “Inter are playing well. They drew 1-1 at home against Atalanta, who are a great team. Let’s say that two points were lost against Cagliari when they drew and it is a pity how the match at the Olimpico against Lazio went but the title race is not over, Inter have played very well. Inter need three points if they want to win the Scudetto. It will be a great match. Inter will definitely win.”

Antonio Conte says that it will only be a short while before Inter start making an impact in the Champions League. He says that the sustained improvement in domestic form gives him a lot of confidence about getting back to success in Europe. Inter Milan have underachieved in European competitions ever since winning the treble – Champions League, Italian Serie A, and Coppa Italia – in 2010. Antonio Conte is the man tasked with getting Inter back to the heydays in Europe. Even though the club have not been able to get to the top of the table in the domestic games, they have been able to put up a remarkable fight for Juventus.
A few years ago, Inter would be more than 10 points behind Juventus in the league table but they are now just one point behind Maurizio Sarri’s men
. There is a real opportunity for Conte to break Juventus’ run of nine consecutive league titles – to which he has also contributed in the past. Ironically, this domestic form seems to be helping Inter in Europe, according to the manager. It would be common to witness teams that excel in Europe struggle in domestic games and vice versa. Only a few months ago, Conte was complaining about the lack of strength in the team but he seems to have overcome negative elements in the squad.

Antonio Conte praised his strikers after they were able to get Inter Milan to a 3-1 win over Slavia Prague in the Champions League. This was a decisive game for the Italian outfit, who were trailing Borussia Dortmund in the group stages going into the last two matches. If not for this victory, Inter would be stuck in the third place and potentially heading to a Europa League spot in the knockout stages.
Now, Inter have given themselves a huge chance of reaching the Champions League last 16 even if the team needs to overcome Barcelona in the last game.
Lautaro Martinez was able to come up with two goals while Romelu Lukaku added a third for the Italian team. The former opened the scoring after just 19 minutes when he was assisted by the Belgian.

Argentine striker Lautaro Martinez has said that Inter Milan should carry the positives from the recent defeat to Juventus in the Serie A. The Nerazzurri had the chance to gain a five-point advantage over the Bianconeri at the top of the table but that was not the case as they suffered a 2-1 defeat in their homeground.
Owing to that result, the Nerazzurri have dropped a point behind the reigning champions on the table but Martinez is not overly concerned by the situation. Speaking on international duty, Martinez said that the Nerazzurri need to work harder to match the level of the Bianconeri and they should consider the recent defeat as a stimulus to improve.

Chile international Alexis Sanchez has said that he does not regret the decision to join Manchester United in the winter of 2018. The attacker made the move to the Red Devils from Arsenal amid much fanfare and there was the anticipation that he could transform the fortunes of the club and lead them to the Premier League title.
However, that has certainly not happened with just five goals resulting from 45 appearances and he has recently made the move to Inter Milan on loan in the quest for regular first-team football. Speaking to BBC Sport, Sanchez said that he enjoyed his time with the Gunners but he made the move to the Red Devils in order to win everything. He added that he has no regrets over the failure to do so.

Croatian winger Ivan Perisic has said that he could not turn down a move to Bayern Munich after the offer came by. The 30-year-old was widely expected to leave Inter Milan this summer after falling down the pecking order under manager Antonio Conte but the move to the Bavarian giants certainly came out of the blue.
Speaking to reporters, Perisic acknowledged that things happened very quickly with respect to the transfer and he did not have much to ponder regarding the move to the German champions, he said: “Everything happened very quickly. I only needed a couple of hours to decide and to speak to my family. You can’t say no when a club like Bayern Munich calls you. I’ve got a lot of experience and that helps me. I’m coming here to play. At this level you need every player in the squad.” Continue reading Ivan Perisic insists he could not turn down Bayern Munich move
Former Inter Milan striker Sergio Gori believes the Nerazzurri have to backup plan, should they fail to pursue the signature of Romelu Lukaku this summer. The Manchester United striker has been earmarked as the top target for the Nerazzurri in the transfer window but they have not found the breakthrough over a transfer agreement with the Red Devils reluctant to reduce on their £80m price tag.
Speaking to Tutto Mercato Web, Gori said that the San Siro giants are going into the new season without much planning, considering they have placed the entire focus on landing Lukaku from the Red Devils. Mauro Icardi has already been deemed surplus to requirements under new boss Antonio Conte and Gori is concerned with the club heading into another campaign with just one senior striker in Lautaro Martinez in the ranks.
