Manchester United to sell Anthony Martial to fund massive transfers

Manchester United might be prepared to sell their French forward Anthony Martial this summer as they look to raise massive amounts of money to fund the signing of their priority transfer targets.

The mercurial forward looks to have regained his natural form this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and has already netted 14 times in 30 appearances so far.

His superb run for the Red Devils hasn’t gone unnoticed as two papers on Sunday morning have suggested he will be targeted by two big-spending sides this summer, despite being contracted to Manchester United until summer 2024.

According to the Sunday Express, Inter Milan are said to be interested in Martial as they look to replace Lautaro Martinez, who is being strongly linked to Barcelona during the upcoming transfer window.

Having already brought in Alexis Sanchez, Romelu Lukaku and Ashley Young from United already, the paper claims that Antonio Conte will turn once again to Old Trafford to find a potential replacement for Argentine Martinez.

And it’s claimed that Conte will be handed all of Inter’s £92million windfall for Martinez to sign either Martial or Arsenal striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, both of whom compile his two-man wanted list.

Alternatively, the Sunday Mirror claims 24-year-old Martial heads up Barcelona’s wanted list should they fail to lure Martinez from the San Siro.

It is claimed by the Mirror they will turn to United for Martial instead and would be confident a £75m offer would be enough to secure his signing.

And while Solskjaer would be loathed to lose him, the money on offer for Martial may prove too good to turn down as the club look to rebuild under the Norwegian.
