Manchester City end their pursuit of Lautaro Martinez

Lautaro Martinez- Inter Milan

Premier League club Manchester City are thought to have ended their pursuit of the Inter Milan striker Lautaro Martinez.

The talented Argentine forward has been courted by the likes of Barcelona in the recent months but it seems that he has decided to extend his contract with the Italian club.

Lautaro Martinez is one of the most talented attackers in world football right now and Inter Milan will be delighted if he commits his long term future to the club.

It will be interesting to see who Manchester City turn to as an alternative to the Argentine now.

The Premier League side will be desperate to bring in a top-class attacker at the end of this season.

Sergio Aguero is in the twilight of his career right now and they will have to find a top-class replacement.

Manchester City have been linked with the likes of Erling Haaland. The Borussia Dortmund striker has made quite a name for himself over the past year and he could prove to be a quality long term investment as well.

That said, the Dortmund striker is a different player to that of Martinez. The Argentine is a complete forward and he could improve Manchester City creatively as well. Haaland is more of a pure goal scorer like Sergio Aguero.

The Inter Milan striker would probably be a better fit add Manchester City given the way Pep Guardiola likes to play. It will be interesting to see who the Premier League club ends up signing in the summer.
