Ten Hag has decided on first transfer!

Manchester United want to buy Inter forward Lautaro Martinez and are ready to include Anthony Martial into the deal.

The Red Devils are facing a shortage of forward players, with Greenwood self-destructing due to a conflict with his girlfriend, Cavani leaving the team at the end of his contract, and Rashford and Martial showing terrible shape. The only optimal option in the forward position is Ronaldo. But it would be crazy to start a new season with a sole striker who will soon be 38 and who may also be out of the club this summer.

The choice fell on the Nerazzurri star. The Argentine has been targeted by top clubs for years and miraculously did not move to Barcelona in 2020. Lautaro is a fast and technical footballer who can be both the tip of attacks and can go down to the center of the field to search for the ball. Martinez will definitely add the necessary movement to United's offensive line, which looks extremely static and unwieldy.

Even before the start of the transfer window, it was clear that the Black-and-Blues’ striker would leave the team and he had already found an heir. Next season, Paulo Dybala will play for the Milan club, who will replace his compatriot in the attacking line.

In recent seasons, Inter has become a rescue home for Manchester United players who have failed in the Premier League. Lukaku, Young, Sanchez, Darmian managed to play for the Italians, who can no longer handle the competition in the starting line-up. The Belgian became the best striker in Serie A when the club won the Scudetto, and the eternally young Ashley, in his age, was able to completely close the left wing. For Martial, such a transfer could be a salvation. Obviously, the football player will no longer become the second Mbappe, but in Italy there will be hope for a stable game and goals scored.

The only thing that confuses is the physique of the Argentine. The striker has not played in such competitive leagues as in England. Yes, Lautaro has excellent technique and speed, but due to his inexperience and unpreparedness for a lot of power combats on the pitch, he can get lost among the strong defenders of the Premier League, and there are many of them.
