Man United join race to sign No.10 South American centre-forward

Inter Milan centre-forward Lautaro Martinez has reportedly pushed for super-agent Jorge Mendes to take control of his future as he eyes a big transfer away from his current club. Argentina international has shone in Serie A in recent times, but it looks he could soon be on the move as he’s been keen to leave the Nerazzurri for some time now.

Lautaro has been and will continue to be represented by Beto Yaque and Rolando Zarate, but he wants Mendes to aid him with a big transfer move in the near future. Jorge is well known in the footballing world for representing some of the biggest players and getting involved in some of the most high-profile agreements.

This could help Martinez get the switch he wants, with the report also casting doubts over his future and linking him with Man City. The 23-year-old striker could certainly be an excellent signing to come in as a long-term replacement for Sergio Aguero, but one imagines there will be other suitors too.

The Argentine centre-forward also linked with Man City’s rivals Red Devils in the past, and they could definitely also do with bolstering up front in the near future. It would be great to see Lautaro in the PL during his peak years, so it will be interesting to see how this latest development affects his future.

Edinson Cavani joined Man United in the summer but surely doesn’t have that much longer left at the highest level, while Anthony Martial and Marcus Rashford haven’t been the most consistent and reliable goal-scorers. Martinez could cost as much as £81m, which is his release clause at Inter Milan.
