- While impressed by Lautaro Martinez, Fabio Capello said the Inter star would face a test at Barcelona.
Fabio Capello praised Inter star Lautaro Martinez, but warned the forward it was better to be starting at the Serie A club than being on the bench at Barcelona.
Martinez has been linked with a move to the LaLiga giants, having scored 16 goals in 31 games for Inter this season.
While Capello is impressed by the Argentina international, the former Real Madrid and Juventus head coach said Martinez would face a challenge to break into Barcelona's starting side.
"Lautaro Martinez is a very good player," he told El Larguero.
"He has everything – a lot of quality, very fast moves and also he's very good when he shoots on goal.

"Going to Barcelona and becoming a starter with Luis Suarez there is difficult.
