In the exchange deal, the Red Devils are also ready to add cash in order to lure Inter Milan to sell the forward.

Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer Anthony Martial to Inter Milan in order to sign Lautaro Martinez.

The Italian side is expected to demand more from the Argentine, and to make the deal even sweeter, United are ready to add €50 million plus Martial in order to make the move successful.

Simeone Inzaghi is expected to ask for more reinforcements in the summer, and some players are expected to leave to make room for new ones.

Martinez is one of those who could find a new club, but his move will be motivated by the fact that the Serie A club is keen to cash in on him.

There are also doubts over Joaquin Correa and Edin Dzeko, and Romelu Lukaku is expected to make a return to Chelsea.

To get funds, Inter will need funds to get their transfer targets, and Martinez can easily fetch them around €80–90 million.

United will get into the transfer market looking for a center-forward, and the World Cup winner is said to be prominently featured in their transfer wishlist.

Meanwhile, United are keen to bolster their defense unit by signing Andreas Christensen from Barcelona.

The Red Devils have eyed the defender and want to get him in a deal worth €70 million this summer.

Christensen has established himself as one of the key players for Xavi Hernandez since joining the club last summer. A return to the Premier League – having previously featured for Chelsea and left in a Bosman move – could be possible with United interested.

He has turned out for 27 games for Barcelona and has a goal and an assist, but financial issues at Camp Nou could see him seal a move to Old Trafford.

Erik ten Hag will be keen to sign a centre-back to provide proper cover for Raphael Varane and Lisadro Martinez, who are currently injured.
