Former Manchester United striker Romelu Lukaku wasted no time before scoring goals for his new side Inter Milan, thanks to his understanding with his new attacking partner Lautaro Martinez.

Martinez has obviously formed a deadly partnership with the Belgian forward, having scored 11 league goals between them.

However, the partnership could be a short-lived one as reports claimed that Manchester United and Barcelona are interested in signing the 22-year-old Argentine striker in the next summer transfer window.

Martinez, who has scored six goals this campaign, is attracting interest from Barcelona manager Ernesto Valverde as the search for Suarez’s ideal replacement continues.

Reports from Italy revealed that the 22-year-old is also a target for United manager Solskjaer who is obviously in need of a top center-forward to replace Lukaku in January.

Should United beat the Catalans to Martinez’s signature, the versatile youngster will become the Belgian’s replacement and he will hope to live up to expectations.

Martinez has a whopping £96m buyout clause in his contract with the Nerrazurris and it remains unknown if the Red Devils will be willing to trigger such huge clause.

But in the meantime, United still count on Rashford and Martial’s abilities to score in order to help the team win many matches before the end of the year.
