Lautaro Martinez reveals 'dream' of playing alongside Messi at Inter Milan

Inter were named among favourites to land Messi when he handed in a transfer request at Barca in August.

Leo's move to the Giuseppe Meazza was a 'big dream' for Lautaro.

Martinez, who has long been linked with a Camp Nou switch, is also happy to stay in Milan for years to come.

“It was a big dream for me,” Lautaro Martinez said of Lionel Messi's move to Inter Milan last summer in an interview with Sportweek.

“It’s amazing to play with him, he is the best player in the world and I am lucky enough to play with him in the national team. He is an inspiration for young players.”

Messi handed in a transfer request at Barcelona in August. The Nerazzurri were named among favourites to land the 33-year-old alongside Man City and Paris Saint-Germain.

The Argentine eventually stayed at Barca and will wait until the end of the season to decide whether to extend his contract with the Catalans.

Lautaro's current deal with Inter runs out in 2023. The striker has long been linked with a transfer to Camp Nou but appears to be in no hurry to quit the Giuseppe Meazza.

“I am happy at Inter, Milan is a great city,” the 23-year-old added.

“My agent and the club are talking and I am calm. I only want to give everything for Inter, then we’ll reach an agreement.”
