Manchester United boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a huge admirer of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez and would love to bring the Argentina international to Old Trafford this summer instead.
The Norwegian, however, knows his side require more in attack if they’re to catch up to the likes of Liverpool and Manchester City.
And Foot Mercato say Solskjaer would love United to move for Martinez, who has impressed at Inter this season.
Barcelona have been widely considered as frontrunners in the race to sign the 22-year-old, despite Inter insisting he’s not up for sale.
But the Red Devils are hoping to exploit the situation, with the website claiming they’d look to exploit the fact Barcelona will need to include players as part of the operation.
The Catalan giants are hoping to use swap deals to land the players they crave this summer and that’s how they hope to recruit Martinez.
