Juventus look to Anthony Martial

March 9, 2018 - 7:35 am

Juventus have been linked with a move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial.

The Frenchman is out of contract at Old Trafford in June 2019 and is yet to agree a contract extension with United, however talks are reportedly under way over a 12-month extension.

The Times reports that Juventus director Pavel Nedved met with Martial’s representative Nelio Lucas in London after the Bianconeri’s 2-1 victory over Tottenham Hotspur.

The 22-year-old has spent much of the season on the bench, making just 16 starts for United in the league this season. His playing time is expected to be restricted even further following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

Martial has 12 goals and 13 assists for United in all competitions this season.

    How about Martial and Fabinho and a right back. Is that sufficient? Or are we covered enough with Bernadeschi, Costa, Pjaca and Coudradro? I like Martial and his pace.

      Martial and Fabinho… man that’d be fantastic. Martial has so much potential that he hasn’t shown at United, and Fabinho is the style of player we desperately need. Also I think with Martial, there’s no longer a need for Cuadrado, who is too inconsistent and lesser of a player than Costa or Bernardeschi. I also can’t see us doing much with Pjaca unless he starts having monster performances. It seemed like when he was healthy, Allegri and co were not impressed, and the injury only set him back further. But yeah, these two and a better right back are definitely what I’m hoping to see.

    If only this became reality, Martial is one of my favorite players. He reminds me of Henry so much, the footwork is amazing. Pipita is getting up there in age but imagine Dybala-Higguain-Martial- Costa Bernandeschi and Pjanic… o man. I do think he is probably on the trading block, Mourinho does not like or trust young players. Pretty sure Man U will make another huge signing this summer, doubt they’ll let City surpass them consecutively. Martial would be an absolute gem, but it won’t be cheap and I’m sure there would be a ton of other teams interested. Although I’d get his jersey ASAP :).

      Yup biggest Shout is that Mourinho still wants Brozovic from Inter; He is also after Lemar, Pulisic and Bale. I feel Like MArtial will be a Pogba 2.0 lol, we would get him cheap now and sell him back for 150M-200M in 1 or 2 years when Mourinho gets fired.

    look on mandragora, cristante and barella, for the wingback there are darmian or florenzi and spinazolla who will come back from atalanta.
