Man Utd in danger to miss out signing of proven Serie A goalscorer

By | March 26, 2020

La Liga giants Barcelona are reportedly becoming increasingly confident that they will win the race to secure the services of Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez when the transfer window will be re-opened in the summer.

The 22-year-old forward has been in stunning form for Inter Milan during the 2019-20 season, finding the back of the net on 16 times in 31 games in all competitions.

Barca are believed to have identified the Argentina international as a perfect replacement for Luis Suarez.

Man Utd and Man City have also been rumoured with the South American forward, however, according to The Mirror, the Spanish defending champions believe that they will win the race for his services this summer.

Argentine international forward who is believed to have a release clause in the region of £100m, could allegedly head to the Catalan club as part of a swap deal for South American midfielder Philippe Coutinho.

Barca signed Martin Braithwaite on an emergency deal back in February after it was confirmed that French forward Ousmane Dembele would be out for the rest of the season due to a hamstring injury.

Meanwhile, Manchester City and Manchester Utd reportedly intend to launch an approach for Atletico Madrid playmaker Saul Niguez later in 2020.

The 25-year-old midfield star has spent all but a season of his professional career at Spanish giants, founding back of the net 38 times from 284 games in all competitions.

However, despite the Spaniard having a deal with the club until 2026, it has been reported that the La Liga outfit may consider selling Spanish playmaker in the summer.

According to reports in Spain, the Red Devils and the Citizens continue to keep tabs on the situation ahead of making a bid for the midfielder.
