Barcelona: Flirting with Barcelona takes toll on Lautaro

Lautaro Martinez has come under fire for his poor display in the Coppa Italia semi-final against Napoli, with the Italian media putting it down to his desire to join Barcelona.

Both the Catalans and the Argentine forward have made no secret of their wish to be united this summer, but it appears to be taking a toll on the 22-year-old.

After Napoli earned a 1-1 draw (2-1 aggregate) on Friday night which took them through to the final, La Gazzetta dello Sport highlighted Lautaro’s poor display as a factor.

“Gattuso in the final, Lautaro in Barcelona,” read the newspaper’s front page.

The publication implies that the Argentine’s head is currently elsewhere, and that Antonio Conte faces a mountainous task to get the striker focused again.
