Manchester United are unwilling to pay Lautaro Martinez’s release clause in his Inter contract according to a report from British news outlet The Times.
The 22-year-old Argentine international striker has a €111 million release clause in his contract with the Nerazzurri, which is only available to clubs for a two week window between the beginning and middle of each July.
The Premier League side are on the look out for a top striker upon realising they made a mistake by not replacing Romelu Lukaku after selling him to Inter in what was a club record transfer deal for the Nerazzurri.
They looked at Lautaro but have balked at the fact the only way they could have possibly got him was by paying his release clause and they will now need to turn their attention elsewhere.
As per other reports in the media, United are not alone in having shown an interest in signing Lautaro, who joined Inter in the Summer of 2018 in a circa €20 million deal from Superliga Argentina side Racing Club.
Barcelona are believed to be very keen on signing him whilst Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea have all also been linked with him too.
