Lautaro Martínez has managed 16 goals and four assists in 31 appearances in all competitions for Inter Milan this season.

The Argentina international’s performances for club and country have seen him emerge as a transfer target for top European clubs.

Barcelona have long maintained their interested in the striker and Manchester United get a mention in today’s edition of Sport.

The newspaper states the Red Devils and Paris Saint-Germain are trying to convince the 22-year-old join them by offering a ‘multi-million dollar contract’.

Unfortunately for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and PSG, their sporting projects don’t appeal the South American.

United are fifth in the table with 45 points, trailing fourth placed Chelsea by three points, and Sport states there will be no Champions League football at Old Trafford next season.

Solskjaer has Anthony Martial and Odion Ighalo as the two recognised strikers in the squad. The Nigerian is on loan from Shanghai Shenhua and there have been reports claiming his stay at the club could be extended beyond this season.

Even if United decide against retaining Ighalo for next season, signing Martínez is unlikely to be a priority for them.

Sport may have dragged United into the mix to make Barca look like they have beaten competition from several clubs, when they eventually end up signing the Inter player.
