Today, the 25-year-old Argentine is the main star in Inter Milan's attack and has become indispensable for the club in recent years. Martinez has played 238 matches for the FC, scoring 102 goals in all competitions. Last season, he finished as the second top scorer in the Serie A with 21 goals giving way only to Victor Osimhen from Napoli, who scored 26 goals. The forward's contract with Inter Milan runs until the summer of 2026, and Transfermarkt values him at 85 million euros.
Despite being only 25 years old, Martinez already has an impressive list of trophies. He won the World Cup with the Argentina national team in 2022 and the Copa America in the 2020/21 season. With Inter Milan he has won five titles: in the 2020/21 season he became the champion of Italy, a year later he won the Coppa Italia and Italian Super Cup, and in the 2022/23 season he won these two trophies once again.
List of latest Lautaro Martinez transfer odds
After it became known that Romelu Lukaku would not stay at Inter on a permanent basis, the chances of Lautaro Martinez changing clubs have become even lower. Some bookmakers have even removed the option to bet on Martinez leaving Inter this summer from their websites. For instance, for Inter Milan, SkyBet provides Lautaro Martinez next club odds of 1.13. Nevertheless, let's consider all the possible Lautaro Martinez transfer odds.

Lautaro Martinez is so indispensable for Inter Milan that the club's management does not even want to hear about the possibility of the Argentine's transfer. The forward has already scored over a hundred goals for the FC and it seems like he will score many more. The contract until 2026 allows the player, who has repeatedly stated that he is happy in Milan, as well as the club, which sees the Argentine as a leader for years to come, to feel confident. However, the situation may change as early as next summer, especially if a grand like Real Madrid or Manchester City really wants to see the forward in their squad.
When it comes to rumours surrounding Martinez, they most often appear in the context of Real Madrid's interest in him. Spanish media reported during the last season that the club was keeping an eye on Lautaro Martinez, but no specifics were mentioned. It is evident that the forward is one of many players whose progress is being monitored by the FC. If Real Madrid fails to sign priority players, primarily Kylian Mbappe, to strengthen their attack, it is quite possible that the club will consider the option of purchasing Martinez during the winter transfer window.
Seeing Chelsea as a possible Lautaro Martinez next club option is also somewhat unexpected. Yes, over the past season, the FC has accustomed its fans to major and not always straightforward spending, but in this current transfer window, the club is primarily focused on selling its assets. The hypothetical purchase of the 25-year-old Argentine would complicate the already challenging situation with financial fair play. And let's not forget that the club has already strengthened its attacking line by signing Christopher Nkunku and Nicolas Jackson.
Manchester United is looking for ways to strengthen their attacking potential, but according to press reports, Lautaro Martinez is far from the top priority for the FC. For years now Man Utd has been trying to buy Harry Kane from Tottenham but they consistently fail to do so. In addition to the England national team leader, Manchester United is interested in 20-year-old forward Rasmus Højlund from Atalanta. There were even reports in the media of a transfer fee of 70 million euros that Manchester United would have to pay to the club for the Danish footballer. As we can see, Martinez is far from the top priority for Man Utd, as indicated by the odds set by bookmakers (19.00-21.00).
The English champion and the best club in Europe has an impressive attacking line, but that does not mean Pep Guardiola does not want to make it even stronger. However, with the brilliant performances of Erling Haaland and the progress of Julian Alvarez, it seems that Lautaro Martinez may not have a permanent place in City's squad. He is hardly ready to swap his status at Inter Milan for a fight for a place in Manchester City's starting lineup, despite the chance to work with one of the greatest managers of the generation.
Bookmakers also do not believe in this transfer and offer odds ranging from 21.00 to 34.00. This certainly does not rule out the possibility that City may seriously consider acquiring the Argentine at some point in the future.
