Manchester United and Real Madrid could attempt to sign Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez from under Barcelona's noses, according to a report.

Manchester United and Real Madrid are reportedly both keeping a close eye on the developments surrounding Inter Milan's Lautaro Martinez and a potential move to Barcelona.

The Argentina international has been in impressive form for Inter during the 2019-20 campaign, scoring 16 times in 31 appearances, including five goals in six Champions League outings.

Barca have been consistently linked with the striker in recent weeks, but it is understood that the Spanish champions are struggling to agree a deal for a player who has a €111m (£99m) release clause in his deal at San Siro.

According to Marca, the Catalan giants could yet be priced out of a summer move for the South American, and both United and Madrid are monitoring developments.

The report claims that United met with the 22-year-old's agents 'a few weeks ago' to discuss a potential summer deal, and the Red Devils remain interested in his signature.

Madrid, meanwhile, are allegedly 'keeping an eye on the situation' as the capital giants seek a long-term replacement for Karim Benzema.

Martinez has found the back of the net on 25 occasions in 66 appearances for Inter since joining the Serie A giants from Racing Club in the summer of 2018.
