Martinez is reportedly Barca's prime transfer target.
Inter star Martinez will become a substitute at Barca, says former England boss.
Former Juventus and Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello believes Inter star Lautaro Martinez would become a substitute if he decides to leave the San Siro for the Camp Nou. It is widely known that Barca are looking to secure the services of the Argentine forward, who has scored 16 goals in 31 games across all competitions for the Nerazzurri before COVID-19 brought football to a standstill, as the Blaugrana believe he is an ideal candidate to replace veteran forward Luis Suarez. However, former England coach Capello believes the Argentina international will be making the wrong call if he decides to leave Inter.
"If it were me I'd stay at Inter," Capello told La Gazzetta dello Sport. "At Barcelona he'd be a substitute."
Capello is also convinced the coronavirus crisis will affect football financially, saying 'Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are going to suffer a lot.' "The market will be revolutionised," Capello added. "Absurd numbers had been seen, but now we'll return to a more reasonable level. "It seems to me that the only team in Spain who won't be destroyed by the pandemic are Real Madrid. "Barcelona and Atletico Madrid are going to suffer a lot."
