Inter Milan hopes Lautaro will shun Martinez’s Barcelona and agree to a new deal with the club when its release clause ends on Tuesday.
Martinez had a £ 97 million release clause in his contract, but it cannot be activated by clubs outside Italy until July 7.
As soon as Martinez’s contract ends on Tuesday, Inter will offer the forward a new deal, including an improved one.

The improved terms double his current salary, which currently stands at £ 2.5 million per season, plus performance-related bonuses.
His contract will also be extended from 2023 to 2024, and it is likely that Inter will increase the release clause to over £ 97 million, according to Tuttosport.
Inter hopes that the expiration of Martinez’s contract will prevent him from moving to Barcelona.
The Argentinian attacker has been strongly linked to a move to the Nou Camp in recent months.

The Spanish giants see Martinez as an ideal long-term replacement for outgoing Luis Suarez.
However, it is believed that Barca is struggling financially after the corona virus crisis and cannot meet Inter’s asking price.
Inter has also made it clear that they have no intention of lowering the price of their star player.
