Inter Milan To Hike Lautaro Martinez Wages Over Man City Record Transfer

Inter Milan Hike Lautaro Martinez Wages

Inter Milan will have to hike Lautaro Martinez’s wages to fend off interest from Manchester City.

The 23-year-old is on City’s hit list as Pep Guardiola seeks a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, despite a £98million release clause.

Martinez still has three years on his contract, yet Inter want to tie him to two more on top – and have already offered to double his £38,000-a-week salary.

But the Argentine striker wants over four times his current terms before he will commit to staying at the San Siro.

And Guardiola is keeping a close eye on the situation, as he has been tracking the forward for the best part of a year.

Talks between Martinez and Inter have so far hit a stalemate, but further meetings are planned over the next month.

Although the highly-rated hitman, who averages better than a goal every other start for Inter, is happy at the club, he is unhappy at being one of the lower-paid senior stars at Milan.
