Lautaro Martinez is now on the verge of making a move to Spanish La Liga champions Barcelona after the Catalans reportedly agreed deal to sign the Inter Milan striker this summer.
According to the report on UK Sun, Barcelona have offered £16 million-a-year deal for him to lure the Argentine football star to Nou Camp when the season comes to an end.
Barcelona are currently looking for another striker who is capable of replacing Luis Suarez who is approaching the end of his career at the Nou Camp.
Suarez is currently injured now leaving Barcelona to turn their attention to only France international Antoine Griezmann this term.
The term has been a superb one for Lautaro Martinez who has netted 16 goals in 28 games in all competitions this season.
Report added that Barcelona are ready to be paying the player the same amount Antoine Griezmann is collecting at the Nou Camp.
Latest development is now expected to be a sad one for Manchester United who are also monitoring the progress of Lautaro Martinez.
But the Red Devils don't need to worry because they have Nigerian striker Odion Ighalo who has been so impressive since he joined the Old Trafford club.
