Man United eager to sell Anthony Martial: report

Man United are ready to pull the plug on Anthony Martial’s time at Old Trafford.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has landed his man in Jadon Sancho. It took a couple of years and a handful of transfer windows, but the Englishman is finally a Red Devil.

For the Old Trafford Faithful, that was excellent news. However, for Anthony Martial, it may be quite the opposite…

According to the Daily Star, United are eager to sell the 25-year-old forward ‘as soon as possible, after sealing a deal to sign Sancho.

Martial has struggled to play regular football ever since his arrival at the Theatre of Dreams, while admittedly, two changes in manager haven’t helped his case. It’s also worth noting the player himself probably hasn’t developed as much as everyone at United would have liked.

The Star reckon that Martial’s days in Manchester are ‘all but over’ now that Sancho is the new marquee man on the block, before adding the Frenchman is now ‘surplus to requirements’ at United. To us, that feels a little harsh…

Where I do see the reasoning behind selling Martial is financial. Obviously, we’re still in the middle of a pandemic and money is tight for all these football clubs. United are no exception to that and if they can recoup a good chunk of the Sancho fee by parting with Martial, that does make some sense.

It’s stated that Tottenham Hotspur are amongst the interested parties in Martial, though the £50m asking price and £250k-a-week wages could be an issue for Nuno Espirito Santo’s side.

At this point, I’m not convinced that there’s any genuine truth to these rumours, so let’s wait and see if any other sources back up this information…
