He will know. They care for themselves first. Every athlete wants to say that they have won everything in their career

It depends, not long ago it was a big deal for Brazil because it’s a missing one in their collection or it helps for medal tally for country which is good at football or this year France would put big effort.
In the end, it’s always a honour representing your country at any level or competition.

Winning gold in Olympics is the biggest thing in any sport. Just look at Đoković who is probable the greatest tennis player ever but anyway is so obsessed and frustrated cause he didnt win that gold.

It's not just gold in Olympics. Just being there with best athletes in the world around you representing your country is special.

Inter are refusing Lautaro playing the Olympics. That tournament isn't within FIFA scope.

Right move to make. Unless he is signing a contract of not receiving salary should he return injured.
I don’t even know if he should be mad about the decision. He doesn’t score for them anyway 😅

I agree with those who say Inter refused it for him, not in spite of him.

Great shot at the end, very little else though he did his usual (and important) hustle and closing down. Obviously exhausted.

I’d love if he stopped picking the ball up for penalties when Hakan is on the pitch, makes me shit myself every time :lol:

I had the pleasure of watching him for the whole game, he has a certain gravitas that makes the defence hound him constantly. A nice 7/10 game from him

Might be unpopular opinion but imo this coming summer is the time to cash in on him. We all know that one of our stars has to be sacrificed this coming summer and I would pick Lautaro. He’s outdone himself this season and his value is at its peak; it’s going to be hard emulating what he’s done this season again so we might as well sell him at his peak. Spend the money on Gudmundsson and strengthen other areas of the team.

Just like what we did with Onana last season.

We don't have to sell anybody.

If we do that, who will be our main goal scorer next season? I like Gudmundsson more than most, but is Thuram supposed to be our main scorer?

Lautaro guarantees 25-30 goals a season. Also, we don't neccessarily need to sell a star this season. We didn't need to last season but we did it to improve the team. Big difference is last season we had many players with expiring contracts leaving and needed big improvements after barely making the CL.

This season is a bit of a different story. Besides, if we are already getting Zielinski and Taremi, what are the big areas we need to strengthen in? Probably right wingback, but I don't see a big investment there.

Replacing a goal keeper is much easier than replacing someone who is top 10 goalscorer of all time for the club.

I am also with the opinion nobody is unsellable, but the price must be too good to refuse. For a fan favorite and captain.

I have a bigger concern than Lautaro or any single player. Marotta is retiring in 2 years. If we aren't t taking advantage of his Midas hands right now due to lacking of resource (plus ownership instability), happy with 0$ reinforcement.. who will be the guy to rejuvenate the squad?

Sorry I can't name a better director. 0$ to reach CL final and Serie A powerhouse? Also his coach choices from Conte to Inzaghi. Beat all the doubters. Giuntoli seems to be a bright competitor but it seems he can't tie Marotta boots. Ausilio..good eyes on talents but let's keep syncing a complete team out of his scope.

Lautaro thread I know :D coz he is the only one bringing us 40m per year easily.

as long as Zhang/Suning's face here, the probability to sell the starters are high. Let alone Lautaro. His contract extension still hanged on and his contract will end soon increase the chance from the board to sell him at highest money the board can get.

well if Lautaro doesnt extend, every decent owner would sell him. This is no rocket science and has nothing to do with Zhang

where do you got this from that we have to sell a big player this summer? this isn't true

Spend the money on a one season wonder?
