Lautaro Martínez comments on rejecting Saudi Arabia bid


Lautaro Martínez spoke about rejecting a bid to go play in Saudi Arabia.

Martínez and Inter are presently in Japan and played against Al Nassr of Saudi Arabia. The Argentine had reportedly received offers to go play in Saudi Arabia but has rejected them. Speaking in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport, here is what he had to say:

“Offers from Saudi Arabia? It’s true, the huge proposals have arrived. But I’m happy at Inter and happy in Milan. I have no reason to change and my family thinks like me.”

“I’m the captain here, Inter is my second home. I feel loved here since day one and I’m proud to be here.

“Why do so many young people go to Saudi Arabia? It’s a lot of money, but in the end it depends on the person. I chose this (to reject the offer) because I want to continue playing at a high level.

“I’m already thinking about preparing well for the next Copa América and the World Cup with the National Team.”


  1. Italy wanted Lucas Beltrán.. Milan wanted alejo veliz but waiting him to get Italian passport. Then they also try to get him.. NT needed alejo veliz because we need ST who is good in the air.

  2. I can’t imagine how much good all this money would help their needy citizens and MANY within the region!! I remember when Dan Marino (American Football legend) back in the early 90s had a 25Million for 5 years contract and I thought, “wow, 5 MILLION $$ a Year WOW LOL, or when the Bulls wanted MJ to play one more season and gave him 10Mill for one year…….what a JOKE we TALKING BILLIONS NOW!!
