Tiger Punch, September 25, according to the "Marca" news, Barcelona's introduction of Lautaro has basically no play. Although the deal has been advancing in the past few days, the transfer has basically failed due to an unacceptable offer made by Barcelona at the last moment.
Barcelona actually started Lautaro's transfer two weeks ago, and Mendes played an important role in it. As Fati’s transfer consultant, Mendes went to Barcelona to talk about not just Fati, but also suggesting what Barcelona needs to do to sign Lautaro. Once Semedo and Suarez are sold, Lautaro will be more likely to join.
Mendes also successfully fulfilled his promise: to help Barcelona sell Semedo to the Wolves, while also acting as an intermediary to help Barcelona run the transfer of Todibo to Everton.
However, this offer is ridiculous: a fixed fee of less than 15 million euros, the variable fee will be discussed later. For Inter Milan, this condition is undoubtedly unacceptable. Also unable to accept this offer are Lautaro and his agent. After Barcelona and the players have negotiated personal treatment for many months, the offer of Barcelona is speechless. The player's agent intends to go to Milan City to negotiate a contract extension with Inter Milan, and will officially reject Barcelona. They could not understand that after Mendes had done so many things, Barcelona dropped the chain at the last moment. Mendes is also unable to understand Barcelona's approach.
And Barcelona's intentions, quite a secret to the plank road. Under the circumstance that they may be impeached and step down at any time, if Bartomeu and his board leave the club with a loss when they leave, they will have to pay for it out of their own pockets. Therefore, 30 million euros sold Semedo and 15 million euros sold Todibo, and Suarez sold to make room for salary, in order to free some money to make some adjustments to the team's defense, not for A player spends another 100 million. The current suspense is whether Barcelona will sign Depay as a replacement, or to maintain the status quo, there is no top center available in the lineup. For Koman, there is still a big difference whether Lautaro is in the formation.
