Manchester United have been linked with a double swoop for two Argentine talents.

The Manchester Evening News has highlight the two stars as Inter Milan forward Lautaro Martinez and PSG midfielder Leandro Paredes, who would reportedly cost a combined £120m.

Martinez in particular has caught the eye this season, impressing under Antonio Conte at the San Siro.

Parades isn't as influential at PSG, and his lack of gametime may make him a slightly easier target to bring to Old Trafford.

United have been linked with a number of players for the January window, including RB Salzburg striker Erling Haaland.
