Barça have reportedly agreed personal terms with Inter’s Lautaro Martínez, but the deal hugely depends on whether Barça are able to sell Coutinho or not.
Barça’s interest in Lautaro has been no secret. The Catalans have been chasing the 22-year-old for a while now. Acquiring Lautaro’s talents will come with a price, though. Barça will have to sell to be able to finance the Argentine’s arrival at the Camp Nou.
This is where Coutinho comes in. The Brazilian was signed for a mind-boggling fee of around 150 million euros. Unfortunately, Coutinho never really secured his place at the Camp Nou. If Barça want to collect some cash for the Lautaro deal, selling Coutinho has to be one of their biggest bets.
