Man Utd and Ten Hag eyeing move for Argentine ‘beast’; won the World Cup with Lisandro Martinez

Erik ten Hag is interested in signing Lautaro Martinez for Manchester United.

Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan appears to be a target for Manchester United.

Martinez was a key figure in his country’s World Cup victory last year, appearing in all but one of the seven games in Qatar.

The 25-year-old can play as a center-forward or a second striker for Inter this season, adding 13 goals in 18 Serie A goals. His performances appear to have piqued the interest of Old Trafford authorities, despite the fact that he is under contract at the San Siro until 2026.

Transfer Updates


According to the report, Erik ten Hag’s team is interested in the attacker and that Inter Milan would consider selling him if a €100 million deal came in. They go on to say that United defender Lisandro Martinez, who won the World Cup with the striker, ‘might support his purchase’.

United paid €105 million for Paul Pogba in 2016, therefore it appears that United will need to make Martinez their second most expensive acquisition of all time in order to secure a deal.

 On Friday, Calciomercato published an update on Martinez, naming United and Premier League rivals Tottenham.

According to the report, Erik ten Hag’s team is interested in the attacker and that Inter Milan would consider selling him if a €100 million deal came in. They go on to say that United defender Lisandro Martinez, who won the World Cup with the striker, ‘might support his purchase’.

United paid €105 million for Paul Pogba in 2016, therefore it appears that United will need to make Martinez their second most expensive acquisition of all time in order to secure a deal.

However, a new marquee forward looks to be required in 2023, especially given that there is no option to make Wout Weghorst’s loan transfer permanent.

With Anthony Martial as the club’s sole acknowledged centre-forward, signing Martinez, dubbed a “beast” by Inter teammate Romelu Lukaku, might be a statement of purpose by Ten Hag.

Martinez is the most valued Argentine player on the planet and the sixth most valuable striker in the world, according to Transfermarkt, and after his outstanding exploits in front of goal this season, he may be a wise purchase.
