Anthony Martial & Man United
In the past few weeks, rumours concerning the future of Man United forward Anthony Martial have started to swirl about.
2016-17 was largely frustrating year for French forward.
Having burst onto the scene in his first season at Old Trafford scoring 17 times, Martial was sidelined last season by Jose Mourinho as it felt like something wasn’t clicking.
The 21-year-old only made 18 Premier League starts, while he scored four goals and chipped in with six assists in the EPL.
Overall, Martial scored nine goals for Man United in all competitions as the Red Devils won the League Cup and the Europa League.
Martial is now in America with the rest of the United squad for the start of pre-season, but rumours keep popping up linking him with a possible summer move.
First it was Roma
A little over a week ago, Gazzetta dello Sport claimed Roma are targeting a loan deal for Martial for the 2017-18 campaign.
GdS claimed Roma director Monchi has already reached out to Man United to inquiry about Martial’s availability.
Martial could be a replacement for Mohamed Salah in the Italian capital after he joined Liverpool earlier in the summer window.
Now it’s Inter Milan
In more recent days, Martial has been tipped to join Inter Milan.
That rumour blends into Man United’s ongoing pursuit for Croatian international Ivan Perisic.
In fact, according to Gianluca Di Marzio, positive talks have been held about Martial heading to Serie A.
And the European transfer expert hints Inter have been informed that he’d be open to a switch to the San Siro.
On Tuesday night, Anthony Martial’s cousin, who goes by @JemaMtl_22 on Twitter, posted an update about the Man United star and links to Inter.
JM22 has announced that while Inter have indeed made contact with United about Martial’s availability, the French international is “focused” on Man United and the has no intention of leaving the club.
So is that the end of the matter? We suspect not…
Je confirme l'intérêt de l'Inter pour Antho. Mais sa tête est à Manchester et il est concentré pour faire une bonne préparation.
