He told Espacio Acade: "Lautaro Martinez's move to Inter is practically 90 percent — there is just the medical and a few minor details.

"We had previously spoken to City's directors as well as other clubs, but if I had to list them, I would surely miss some out.

"Fiorentina, Monaco, Atletico Madrid, Borussia Dortmund, Roma and Manchester United have asked for information on Lautaro.

"There is no way his move to Inter will fall through, there is already an agreement with the directors. Atletico were interested but didn't make a concrete offer."
