Racing Club says they still hope to keep Inter target Lautaro Martinez for the rest of the year.
Martinez’s agent admitted on Thursday that Inter were “99 percent” likely to sign his client in the summer, but Racing boss Eduardo Coudet would like the young forward to see out 2018 with the Argentine club.
“I hope Lautaro stays with us until December,” he told Ole.
“I hope he’ll be sold with the Copa Libertadores in mind: it all depends on whether we manage to make progress this year.
“I won’t say any more than that, I can’t predict the future. His value? [Rosario] Central paid $650,000 for me when I was 20 years.
“Lautaro is worth a little more than that, plus he also plays a little better than I did.”
