The 26-year-old has already expressed his desire to leave the club due to the lack of game time at the Old Trafford stadium. Meanwhile, things have gotten even more complicated in recent weeks when Ralf Rangnick was asked about the cause of the Frenchman’s absence in the last game against Aston Villa, the German boss said that the forward did not want to be in the squad.
However, the former AS Monaco man posted on Instagram that he never disrespected the club and never said that he doesn’t want to play for the Red Devils.
According to the report, Juventus are willing to sign a new striker in this winter transfer window and are eyeing a move for Manchester United ace Martial as the Bianconeri boss Massimiliano Allegri wants to strengthen his attacking department.
Di Marzio further claims that the Serie A side are in contact with the player’s representatives to understand the situation but the record Italian champions haven’t made a concrete move yet to sign the talented forward.
Will Juventus sign Manchester United star Anthony Martial in January?
Offloading Anthony Martial to Juventus will be a very good decision by Manchester United. The forward has already expressed his desire to leave the club and there is no point in trying to keep the player in the squad.
However, the club’s demand could be a stumbling block in offloading the forward this month. The loan move is the most likely scenario for the 26-year-old and the Red Devils hierarchy are asking for a loan fee as well as covering the forward’s full salary package.
So, it will be interesting to see if Juventus or any club would want to spend that much money on Martial, given the forward has failed to showcase his talent consistently enough at the Old Trafford stadium.
Meanwhile, the Red Devils lack quality in the midfield department and they should sign a defensive midfielder before the end of this month’s transfer window. Manchester United have a bloated squad and they need to trim down the numbers in order to help the German boss to sign a world-class midfielder.
