Bayern Munich Lead Chase For Tottenham Hotspur Linked Anthony Martial

Tuesday, 17 Apr, 2018

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is reportedly open to moving to a Premier League rival club in order to advance his career and gain more first team football.

The France worldwide could leave Old Trafford this summer as he is refusing to sign a new contract.

Since Alexis Sanchez joined the club in January, Martial has not scored and has started only four games including defeats at Tottenham and Newcastle and he was then substituted in the 64th minute against Chelsea.

At the front of the queue, according to Gazzetta dello Sport, is Bayern Munich and Juventus, who are scrapping to sign the forward.

The Italian sports daily claim that Juve want Martial to replace the Mario Mandzukic on the left side of their forward line and would have no problem matching the €5 million salary he is now earning at Manchester United.

The Frenchman will soon enter the final year of his deal at Old Trafford, albeit the contract can be extended by a further 12 months, and United would target a fee in excess of €50 million (£43 million).

The Gunners are presumed to be interested in hauling over the skilled figure, despite being aware of the potential competition they'll face in acquiring his signature.

The interest of two clubs who many football fans would see as now ahead of United is likely to cause concern among supporters at Old Trafford, who are reluctant to see one of their most promising young talents head for the exit.
