Man Utd now keen to make ‘elite’ £60m forward their ‘first’ summer signing at Old Trafford

In the summer transfer window, Lautaro Martinez might prove to be a viable backup option for Manchester United and manager Erik Ten Hag.

When it comes to top candidates Harry Kane, Victor Osimhen, and Dusan Vlahovic, United is awaiting clarification before stepping up their search for a new No. 9.

Martinez, a forward for Inter Milan, is reportedly one of the names that will be taken into consideration if United fails to make progress on any of those three fronts.

Goncalo Ramos is another player who is being scrutinized, even if Benfica intends to negotiate for a big transfer cost. His play efficiency has also drawn some criticism.

At Old Trafford, who would replace Lautaro Martinez?
With the Carabao Cup trophy in his possession and the FA Cup final against Manchester City remaining to be played, Ten Hag has had a fairly successful first season at Old Trafford.

However, the team has weaknesses that need to be fixed, with the striker position being the most urgent.

There is no indication that Wout Weghorst would remain at the team after his loan from Burnley ends, and even then it would only be as a backup option. Due to his ongoing fitness problems and the possibility of being sold if a serious bid came in, Anthony Martial has had trouble persuading Ten Hag that he can be counted on to score goals on a regular basis as well.

What are the possibilities that United will sign its desired strikers?
Although United is still keeping an eye on the problems in North London in case anything changes, Tottenham is totally committed to keeping Kane as things are.

Osimhen is now priced out of the market as Napoli fights to keep him for another season, while Vlahovic’s future at Juventus is uncertain and some sources indicate he will remain loyal to them as they attempt to recover from a difficult year.

These circumstances might prompt United to look at other options, and Lautaro of Inter is a top-tier forward who is currently in fantastic form and has the potential to go.

He has frequently been associated with the Premier League, in part because of a desire to one day test himself in the division, but insiders also suggest that this could be a turning point.

What is the price of Lautaro Martinez?
Due to Inter’s present financial condition, Martinez, 25, might be accessible for roughly £60 million.

He scored both goals in a triumph against Fiorentina in the Coppa Italia Final on Wednesday, and there is a chance that he may catch the attention of other teams in the near future.

As they look for solutions for their forward line, Chelsea might be one of those other interested clubs. It would be intriguing to see how Mauricio Pochettino envisions Chelsea’s style of play opening up with the talent available, especially with Christopher Nkunku due to come from RB Leipzig. Pochettino has already expressed public appreciation for his fellow Argentine.

Although Lautaro isn’t quite the usual, natural No.9 and is frequently used as a winger or extra forward, his record of 28 goals and 11 assists this season shows he has the skills necessary to have an effect at the highest level.
