Transfer: Man Utd have £53million ready to secure signing – Corriere dello Sport

The Italian media outlet have mentioned that the Old Trafford forward is valued at around 30 million euros. On the other hand, the Nerazzuri rate Martinez at 80 million euros.

Martial has been out of form for years and Erik ten Hag needs to offload him and sign a proven quality finisher to improve the strike-force.

The 27-year-old former Monaco man has only netted 4 goals in 16 PL apps this term. He only found the net once in the last league campaign and scored 4 goals in the 2020-21 season.

Therefore, it will not come as any surprise to see him leave. It must be remembered that Weghorst’s loan spell will expire at the end of the campaign and Man Utd have not replaced Ronaldo as yet.

So, the striking department needs a major overhaul in the summer transfer window.

Martinez, who won the World Cup with Argentina last year, has been in fantastic form for Inter Milan.

He has a proven track record in the Italian league and this season, in all competitions, he has directly contributed in over 30 goals thus far.

The South American forward’s current deal with the three-time European Champions will expire in 2026 and he earns a salary of 1.1million euros a season i.e. around £190,000 a week (FT).

Have your say – Should Man Utd sign Lautaro Martinez in an exchange deal involving Martial?
