Manchester United’s main target for the summer transfer window will undoubtedly be a striker, which according to Fichajes could be Lautaro Martínez, who is already in his fifth season at Inter Milan.
The need for a striker to come to Manchester United was clear immediately after the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo. Only, in the winter transfer period, Erik ten Hag and his team only brought Wout Weghorst, who very kindly did not prove himself.
The Dutch striker hasn’t scored a single goal in 12 league games yet, and his overall record for the Red Devils is 25 games – 2 goals and 3 assists. Moreover, in the last few games he has been playing at most a few minutes and it has been almost certain for some time that he will not continue at Old Trafford.
He and his team are already keeping a close eye on the market and looking for the best possible option in attack. The server Fichajes has now come up with the information that the Manchester club have already contacted Inter about a possible purchase of their current best player.
Martínez, who has scored 21 goals in 47 games for the Milan outfit this season, has signed a contract with this year’s Champions League semi-finalists until 2026.
However, according to the available information, Inter should be willing to let the 24-year-old Argentine leave for €80 million, which is definitely an acceptable amount considering that Manchester United, for example, spent €95 million for Antony.
A lot will certainly depend on the fact whether Inter will manage to break into the Champions League next season. There are two paths to that and both will be very difficult.
However, the more likely is a Top 4 finish in Serie A, where Inter currently hold 4th place, only a score ahead of AC Milan and AS Roma. They will then face their city rivals for a place in the Champions League final, where either Real Madrid or Manchester City will await them.
However, for Manchester United, a potential transfer of Martínez to Old Trafford is a great solution, as he is already an experienced cannonballer who can score goals regularly season after season.
Moreover, he can deal with situations at speed, which is important given the team’s style of play and the typology of the other players, not to mention the Premier League. This is where Weghorst and, at the start of the season, Ronaldo were not catching on at all. The game always looked much better without them.
However, there are a number of other strikers in the game and just like that, the summer transfer market will be tough for teams, not only Bayern Munich will be a big rival, who will also be looking for a spike striker.
