Lautaro is a great footballer, says the Barça Manager Setien

Praising the quality of an Argentina and Inter’s forward Setien said Lautaro is a great footballer and playing with Messi is a huge incentive.

The Barcelona manager talked up about linked-transfer of Inter’s forward Lautaro to football club Barcelona that Lautaro is a great footballer and lining up alongside Leo Messi is a “huge incentive” for every footballer.

The striker has been ‘for a very while’ sarcastically, heavily linked to La Liga giants this summer and the Catalans are up a tie interested in bringing back the Brazilian and PSG’s start forward Naymar Jr. back into to squad to make it reckoned with.

The Inter striker has already been playing in Argentina national team alongside Leo Messi and has been phenomenal so far netting the ball 9 times in his 17 appearances for National team.


Setien played down rumours linking a rising star to Camp Nou and said:

“We talk about transfers, but this pandemic is going to condition many things. The situation of the clubs will be economically complicated,” he told  Onda Cero.
“I am not pessimistic or optimistic with Lautaro. I like how I like great footballers, but I have no illusions with any.”

While talking he was pressed about the Star forward, and Barça manager spoke words of praise for him and said he is a great footballer.

“[ Martinez ] Lautaro is a great footballer,” Setien told La Gazzettadello Sport.

“Messi likes him? We will have to ask him. All good players can attract Barcelona’s interest.”
“As well as the fact that for many the fact of being able to play with Leo represents a huge incentive. Who wouldn’t want to play with Messi?”

He has registered his name on scoreboard for 16 times in the season before it suspended due to the outrage of COVID-19 in 31 matches for Inter and has made up a quick though understanding with Lukako at inter and they are looking a heavy match for defenders out there against the duo.
