According to Paul Scholes, Manchester United should contemplate going for Lautaro Martinez of Inter Milan while analyzing their alternatives for the forthcoming summer transfer window.
As for Manchester United, their main objective is to acquire a new striker, particularly as Wout Weghorst is currently on loan until the end of the season and Anthony Martial has been plagued with injuries in recent times.
Although Marcus Rashford has been on fire scoring every other game, bringing in a world-class No.9 will no doubt level up United, as they envision challenging for the Premier League title and reopening their European adventure.
Several players have been associated with the Red Devils, but the most associated ones with a move to Old Trafford are Harry Kane from Tottenham and Victor Osimhen from Napoli.
Paul Scholes expressed his opinion that The Spurs chairman is challenging to negotiate and believes the English captain will stay in North London. Further, he stated that Victor Osimhen would be a better fit for Chelsea, while Lautaro Martinez would be more suitable for Erik ten Hags’ tactical approach.
Speaking to BT Sports, Scholes says” I think he is a Ten Hag type of player, he likes a center forward that will run about, be aggressive, get against people.”
Martinez is having an exceptional season, having scored 17 goals and providing seven assists in 37 games, taking his overall goal involvements for Inter to 122 in 218 matches. Needless to say, having been part of the Argentine roster that bagged the World Cup in Qatar, the 25-year-old is having a good time. In addition to being a proficient scorer, Martinez is also recognized for his physical abilities, technical skills, and unexpected ariel ability, despite not being particularly tall.
He was strongly linked with both North London powerhouses, Arsenal and Tottenham a few seasons ago and the striker has been vocal about his admiration for Premier League.
It remains uncertain whether Inter would consider selling their top striker, who has 3 more years remaining on his contract.
