Manchester United linked with €50m plus player swap for Lautaro Martinez

Manchester United are looking for ways to move on Anthony Martial.

According to Calciomercato, Manchester United are reportedly willing to offer Inter Milan €50 million plus Anthony Martial for Argentina international Lautaro Martinez.

The report claims United are looking to sign Martinez ahead of the upcoming transfer window. They could even look to offer Martial to persuade the Serie A giants after a difficult season.

Martinez has been at Inter Milan since 2018 and since then he has developed into a quality forward.

Some might ask if he is that much of an upgrade on Martial, but at least he would be available more.

Martinez has scored 22 goals (7 assists) in 53 appearances this season. Compared that to Martial’s 7 goals (3 assists) in 24 appearances.

You may think I’m clutching for straws but – unless we strike a swap deal – it’s going to be difficult to get the Frenchman off the wage book.

Ten Hag already knows he can’t count on Martial.
