Report: Man United interested in signing Serie A striker with £94m release clause

 

Manchester United are one of a number of clubs interested in signing Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez, according to reports.

Martinez is one of the most coveted forwards across Europe and has been heavily linked with a move to Barcelona in recent months.

And according to Spanish publication Sport, as sourced by the Daily Mail, United have revived their interested in the 22-year-old who Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has identified as a player he would like to add to his current attacking options.

Martinez has formed a fantastic strike partnership with former United striker Romelu Lukaku at Inter under Antonio Conte this season.

The Argentina frontman has netted 11 goals in 22 appearances in Italy this term, and is the type of dynamic, agile forward that Solskjaer would prefer to build his team around.

Martinez is said to have a hefty £94m release clause that would have to be met if United were to complete a deal for him this summer.

Solskjaer is looking to add to his current attacking options in Marcus Rashford, Anthony Martial, Daniel James and Mason Greenwood with Odion Ighalo’s long-term future uncertain at Old Trafford.

But Martinez has plenty of other potential suitors and it would appear unlikely that United would spend such a high amount on him in this time of financial uncertainty, particularly given the interest in Jadon Sancho.

The youngster has an impressive return of nine goals in 17 games in international football for Argentina.
