A few months ago, going back to the end of 2018, Lautaro Martinez was still on the bench, acting as Icardi backup and as an option to come off the bench when Inter needed a goal. He didn’t get a lot of minutes then to the point that there were many stories on how the Argentinian could go on loan for a few months.
According to FCIN, Sampdoria had decided to step up to sign Lautaro. Obviously only on loan (from January to June of 2019) but Il Toro wearing the Blucerchiati shirt for six months was a concrete idea. But in the end, Piero Ausilio ultimately said no to that idea and now Lautaro Martinez is enjoying one of his best period wearing the colors of our shirt.
