Former Inter Milan star Wilson Palacios has urged his compatriot, Argentina international striker Lautaro Martinez to try and engineer a move to Barcelona in his career. The Inter Milan striker has been attracting some interest from some clubs across Europe in recent times and a lot of people believe that he could be leaving Inter in the nearest future. Inter are currently in a financial crisis and need to sell players in order to balance their books. The Italian Serie A giants saw some of their investors pull out of the club as owners and they must now make revenues in order to remain in business.

After winning the Serie A title last season, they were not able to meet their former manager Antonio Conte’s demands and the Italian tactician had to leave the club. Since then, Moroccan right backAchraf Hakimi has departed the club and joined French Ligue 1 heavyweights Paris Saint-Germain, while a host of their other top players including Martinez and his strike partner, Romelu Lukaku have all been linked with moves away from the club.

Martinez came close to reaching an agreement with Barcelona two summers ago but the agreement was not reached and he eventually agreed to extend his stay at Inter by signing a new contract extension that the club offered him. And according to Palacios, Martinez deserves to play for a top club because he’s a gifted striker. The former attacking midfielder also stated that the current Inter Milan forward would fork a great partnership with Lionel Messi while they continue their bromance for their country.

Lukaku has also been linked with a return to his former club Chelsea and if he does seal the move away, Martinez may be forced to have a similar plan in what could be a huge blow to Inter
