Manchester United are reported to be interested in signing Lautaro Martinez from Inter Milan as they continue their search for a permanent striking partner for Marcus Rashford, according to The Times. The player is said to be having a release clause of £94 million though, which might make Ed Woodward think twice before making any serious move for the player.

Martinez, who has banged in 25 goals and provided five assists in his 62 appearances for Inter Milan (Transfermarkt), is an out and out striker and can be a perfect alternative for Romelu Lukaku that Manchester United have been searching for.

Manchester United were able to get former Watford striker Odion Ighalo on loan on the deadline day of the January Transfer window after Rashford’s injury, however, search for a permanent option is said to be still on.

One fan even labelled the 22-year-old ‘Suarez no:2’ following the rumours, with Martinez averaging more shots per game (4.3) than the Uruguayan this season whilst returning the same amount of league goals (11), as per WhoScored.com.

Nonetheless, these United supporters feel they should pursue a deal for Martinez despite the large price tag – find all of their best comments from Twitter down below.

  1. A player of this type is what is needed…
    We are currently a level below are hated rivals and you need options when pace isn’t the answer you need a body up top.
    How many times have u all screamed in frustration when the ball goes in the box and there is no one there WHERE THE STRIKER SHOULD BE. Martial just wonders I believe a presence up top would benefit him 10 fold
