Lautaro will grow alongside Messi

The Argentina head coach discussed the talented striker's possible move to Camp Nou.

Lionel Scaloni said playing alongside countryman Lionel Messi is better for Inter star Lautaro Martinez amid growing links to Barcelona.

Lautaro has been tipped to swap Serie A side Inter for La Liga champions Barca in the off-season following his exploits in Italy.

The Argentina international forward scored 16 goals in 31 matches across all competitions before the 2019-20 season was halted due to the coronavirus pandemic.

As speculation grows over Lautaro's future, Argentina head coach Scaloni discussed the 22-year-old.

"If he plays with Messi he is better, no doubt. Beyond that later he will have to fight for the position as he did in Inter," Scaloni told TyC Sports.

"We have to be calm. If he changes clubs, maybe he does not have to be the undisputed starter, and it will not affect us, as long as he has a number of minutes that allows him to be in force.

"He has a huge future but still has a lot to give."

Former Inter president Massimo Moratti hinted Lautaro may want to depart the San Siro and the club will battle to keep him in Italy if he is keen to leave.

Moratti told Sportmediaset: "You can't hold someone who has the idea of ​​being somewhere else.
