PAUL Scholes has urged Manchester United to sign Inter Milan star Lautaro Martinez after the Champions League quarter final draw was revealed.
United signed Dutchman Wout Weghorst on loan in January but it is unlikely he will be signed on a permanent basis.
The Red Devils' only other options are Marcus Rashford, who has been in superb form this season, and the injury-prone Anthony Martial.
The Old Trafford club will likely spend a large fee on bringing a striker in this summer.
The two big names being linked are Tottenham's Harry Kane and Napoli's Victor Osimhen but Scholes think's Maritnez would be a good choice.
Scholes spoke to BT Sport on Thursday night following United's 1-0 over Real Betis.

He said: “I like Lautaro Martinez at Inter Milan.
“I think he is a Ten Hag type of player, he likes a centre forward that will run about, be aggressive, get against people.
“I like United’s current options, I like Rashford, I like Martial, but Martial just can’t stay fit. So there are options out there.”
The former midfielder also spoke about Harry Maguire's situation at the club.

He said:“Harry’s in a difficult position not playing games but I think his attitude there with the interview saying ‘it doesn’t matter if I’m playing or not, it’s my job to make sure I can make the club as successful as they can be.
“I think that guarantees him in the England situation as well. It’s a good thing.
"It’s good for Man Utd as well that he will go away and get a couple of games that will only bode well for Manchester United.”
United are next in action on Saturday when they host Fulham at Old Trafford in the FA Cup quarter final.
