Former Inter scout Adelio Moro reveals how the Nerazzurri signed Lautaro Martinez in 2017, thanks to Juventus.

The Argentinean joined the Stadio Meazza for € 25m in the summer of 2018.

“It was January 2017 and they were about to start the South American U-20 Championship,” Moro told Tuttosport.

Ausilio called all the scouts and said, ‘It’s too late to send anybody to Ecuador, but I want every game of the tournament to be followed by guys. Juventus [Rodrigo] Bentancur and Rogerio have already signed, we need to find a young footballer who’s willing, too.’

“A lot of interesting footballers were there,” Moro continued.

Lyanco, who finally joined Torino, and Richarlison, who transferred to Everton. We immediately found this stubborn attacker with great technical skills, Lautaro Martinez, when we were watching Argentina.

He was 19 years old and he had a deal with the Racing Club. “We knew that Juventus and Atletico Madrid wanted to sign him, too. We said to Ausilio, ‘Lautaro has so much potential for improvement, we have to immediately sign him.’

Immediately after the tournament ended, he flew out to Argentina. In-person, he wanted to see Lautaro and talk to the player’s entourage.

“He defeated the other interested clubs and ultimately signed the player.”
