Another striker blow for Man Utd as Inter Milan striker Martinez picks Barcelona

Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

The Argentina international is a wanted man after his exploits for Antonio Conte's side.

ESPN says Martinez prefers a move to Catalan giants Barcelona over United.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer can now add the 22-year-old to his list of missed striker targets.

Erling Braud Haaland rejected a move to Old Trafford last month in favour of joining Borussia Dortmund.

Inter paid Racing Club £20m for Martinez in 2018.

Barca would be prepared to pay big for Martinez as they want to replace the ageing Luis Suarez.
