Barcelona have emerged as the favorites to sign the talented Manchester United winger Anthony Martial, who has struggled to perform after the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, reveals Daily Mail.
Having started only four games since the arrival of Sanchez from Arsenal, despite impressing in the first half of the season, Martial is unhappy with his current status at the club. The French winger is also said to be disappointed with Jose Mourinho’s lack of trust in his abilities and will look to move elsewhere in the summer, as he feels the coming years could make or break his professional football career.
Meanwhile, Barcelona are planning yet another transfer spree in the summer, as they look to win back the Champions League and retain their La Liga title.
La Blaugrana has allegedly identified Martial as the perfect back-up signing, in case they fail to land Atletico Madrid’s Antoine Griezmann, and the club could be ready to offer as much as £60m for his services. Barcelona feel confident that would be enough to persuade Manchester United to release the out-of-favor French international, since they could be looking to raise money to sign Real Madrid’s Gareth Bale.
What do you think? Should Barcelona sign Anthony Martial? Or should Manchester United sell Martial only to buy Gareth Bale?
