CAIRO_16 May 2020: Barcelona and Inter Milan legend, Luis Suarez, believes that Lautaro Martinez is ready to join Barcelona after the club captain, Lionel Messi, expressed his approval for the move.
"Messi knows Lautaro well because he plays for the Argentinan national team. If he says yes, it means he's comfortable with Lautaro, just as he's comfortable with the Uruguayan Luis Suarez." The former winger said.
Suarez, who is the only Spanish player to win the Ballon d'Or, moved from Barcelona to join Inter Milan in 1961 and wore the blue and black jersey for nine years.
Suarez added "They speak very highly of him. I know he was very good in the last league season and he scored goals. He's a very interesting player, if so many teams want him."
Lautaro has been linked with a move to Barcelona after he proved his abilities as one of the promising talents during his first two years in Europe.
Lautaro joined Inter Milan in 2018 summer from his Argentinean childhood club Racing Club and since then he established himself as the team's starting striker.
