The Argentine international is currently paid £48,000-a-week at Inter Milan, who can’t match Barcelona’s offer due to the financial impact of the Coronavirus.

It isn’t yet known if Chelsea will be willing to match Barcelona’s offer for the Argentine striker.

Meanwhile, former Real Madrid boss Fabio Capello recently warned Martinez against making the move to Barcelona.

“If I were him, I would stay at Inter, because at Barca he would be a substitute,” Capello told Gazzetta dello Sport.
