Barcelona have now prepared a fresh bid to get their target this summer as they are willing to offer 70m euro cash plus two of their current players, Arturo Vidal and Nelson Semedo as options in a deal to sign the striker.

Last month, multiple media outlets in Italy reported that Inter Milan’s head coach, Antonio Conte said to the club owners that he will only accept Barcelona’s forward, Antoine Greizmann as a player to trade with Barcelona for Martinez if the club fails to meet up with his release clause. But the Catalan club have no intention of letting the French striker leave so soon, despite his poor form. Ivan Rakitic is also likely to enter the deal as an option to land the 22-year old striker.
