Marco Verratti reaction to yellow card

Manchester United move for Verratti stalls as PSG eye swap deal

Swap

Manchester United have run into trouble trying to land Paris Saint Germain player Marco Verratti, after the Ligue 1 side decided to ask for one of their players as part of the deal.

That’s according to the Mirror, who think that Anthony Martial is a target for PSG, who are having a huge summer when it comes to their recruitment after a disappointing time last season domestically and in Europe.

Jose Mourinho isn’t sure about Martial, but he’s reluctant to allow him to leave in order to get Verratti, with a player plus cash deal far more than United were willing to outlay.

Not only are they struggling to land Verratti, but they’ve also seen moves for Nemanja Matic and Eric Dier stall to boot.

Martial doubt

While United aren’t sure about allowing Martial to leave, it’s clear Mourinho wants more from him, and made that public many times last season.

Should Ivan Perisic come in to boot, Martial could struggle and it may make more sense for United to sell him and bring in a midfielder they feel is needed.

However, if Inter Milan hold onto their winger, Mourinho may have no option but to keep Martial and put his trust in him.
