Inter Milan player Lautaro Martinez has become one of the best young strikers in world football on the back of his impressive outings for the Nerazzurri over the last 12 to 18 months. His quality has come to the attention of several European sides like Barcelona and Manchester United.

At Inter Milan, Lautaro Martinez has formed a very good strike partnership with Romelu Lukaku. The two players have played a big part in firing the Nerazzurri to the level of Italian Serie A contenders alongside defending champions Inter Milan and Lazio.

The Italian Serie A title challenge has been a three-team race for the majority of the season and hostilities will resume when the league returns next month. Argentine international Martinez would be hoping to propel Inter Milan to a first title in a decade at the expense of Juventus and Lazio having already scored 11 goals in 23 league games in this current season. In total, the petite striker has scored 16 goals in 34 games in all competitions thus averaging around a goal in two games.

Barcelona and Manchester United are the two clubs with registered interests in Lautaro Martinez according to media outlets in Spain and Italy, though the Spaniards are regarded as overwhelming favourites to sign the player who has a release clause of €100m in his Inter Milan contract.

Manchester United and manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer want to sign a striker this summer and they have been linked with a lot of names to that effect despite the presence of Nigerian striker Odion Jude Ighalo. He joined on a short-term loan in January and has impressed a great deal since then but the loan deal expires at the end of next month. Ighalo has scored four goals in a handful of games for the Red Devils.

The Red Devils will have to see off Barcelona who see Lautaro Martinez as the long-term replacement for Luis Suarez for them to win the race to sign the player.

Transfer Ratings for Lautaro Martinez to Manchester United: 2/10.

Dayot Upamecano

This might not be good news for English Premier League club Manchester United as they have been told that they are not alone in the race for Dayot Upamecano and it is made clear that there are yet to be a concrete offer for his signature.

The player himself made this known when he admitted he has been in great demand but noted that he does not know what the future holds for him as he has just signed a new contract with his club because he wants to be with his teammates.

The RB Leipzig was also on Arsenal radar but with the capture of Gabriel Magalhaes, the Red Devils will now enjoy a free run for his signature in   January.

It is understood that manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer is a big fan of the 21-year-old as he was attracted by his impressive performances on RB Leipzig’s run to the Champions League semi-finals.

However, reports claim that the Red Devils board is not too convinced about the readiness of Dayot Upamecano for a first-team football in the English Premier League and that has to be sorted out before an official bid is submitted to his club in January.

Cristiano Ronaldo

Juventus star, Cristiano Ronaldo might have parted ways with his former club, Manchester United but that does not mean he has not been having one influence or the other on the club.

This was made known by former defender Patrice Evra who claims that the Portuguese star played a major role in bringing Bruno Fernandes to Manchester United in the last winter transfer window.

He revealed that Cristiano Ronaldo was the one who gave the go-ahead to the club to move in for Bruno Fernandes as they did not know anything about the player before his capture.

Patrice Evra stated that Bruno Fernandes is now making a massive impact at the club by ensuring more wins and helping to bring out the best in Paul Pogba.

Bruno Fernandes has even boasted that the best is yet to be seen of him as he has been training very hard to help his team the more in the coming season.

However, Cristiano Ronaldo remains a living legend of Manchester United as he made a very big impact at the Old Trafford, including winning of the Champions League, the Premier League as well as winning the World Best Footballer award as a Red Devils player under manager Alex Ferguson.

Benoit Badiashile

The search by English Premier League club Manchester United continues for players that will turn their season around but they are only close to sealing one.

Manchester United are keen on a new defender that will partner Harry Maguire and have been linked with French Ligue 1 outfit Monaco star, Benoit Badiashile with their first bid rejected.

According to AS, the Red Devils had submitted an offer of £25 million for the signature of Benoit Badiashile but Monaco rejected it because it was £2 million short of his release clause.

This means the Red Devils can complete the signing of the central defender if they return with an additional £2 million bid as that is the only way they can land him in January transfer window.

The Spanish outlet also adds that Monaco are not interested in parting ways with Benoit Badiashile because they still have a big need of him but they will be left with no choice if his release clause is tabled.

One area manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will focus on in January is the defensive department after seeing his team concede 36 goals   last season.

However, we expect to see more signings from the Red Devils in January.
