Manchester United Eyeing Inter Milan’s Star as Summer Transfer Target
The revelation comes from report by Fichajes, suggesting that Erik Ten Hag, United’s manager, has personally endorsed the pursuit of the Argentine sensation.
With aspirations to fortify his squad for the upcoming campaign, Ten Hag, buoyed by the backing of newly acquired 25% shareholder Sir Jim Ratcliffe, is said to be targeting reinforcements in both defensive and offensive departments.
While defensive solidity remains paramount, the desire to add an experienced center forward to complement emerging talent such as Rasmus Hojlund is also a priority for the Dutch tactician.
Martinez emerges as the leading candidate to fulfill this attacking role, given his impressive track record and suitability for Ten Hag’s tactical vision. However, the potential stumbling block for United looms large in the form of Martinez’s hefty price tag, currently valued at a staggering £94 million by Transfermarkt. Despite the financial implications, United could explore avenues to fund the acquisition through player sales and strategic financial maneuvers.
The 24-year-old Martinez has been a revelation since his arrival at Inter Milan from Racing Club in 2018, establishing himself as a prolific goal scorer and a vital cog in the Nerazzurri’s setup. Boasting 124 goals and 41 assists in 268 appearances across all competitions, Martinez’s pedigree and experience, including his triumphant 2022 World Cup campaign with Argentina, make him an enticing prospect for Manchester United as they aim to reclaim their status among Europe’s elite.
