Anthony Martial celebrates Man United winner at Burnley

Anthony Martial’s huge price tag revealed to Chelsea & Tottenham

Anthony Martial & Man United

In today’s Sunday Sun, the issue of Anthony Martial’s ongoing career at Man United is flagged up.

The last few days have seen relationship between Martial and Man United sour considerably.

After months of speculation, Anthony Martial’s agent has confirmed last week that his client wants to leave Manchester United. Philippe Lamboley told RMC Sport:

After thinking about all the factors and possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United. There are lots of factors, and right now it’s too early to talk about them. 

Manchester United want Anthony to extend his deal and do not want him to leave but we have not reached an agreement for several months.

The news broke several weeks ago that Martial had rejected a five year contract offer from United.

Martial’s decision to leave Old Trafford has been cemented after he’s dropped down the Man United pecking order.

Alexis Sanchez’s arrival from Arsenal could have been the final straw for Martial.

Chelsea & Tottenham

Two clubs are repeatedly linked to Martial in the press.

The first team are Chelsea, while the second side are Tottenham.

At the same time, there have been reports that Man United have drawn a line in the sand that they will not sell Martial to a Premier League rival.

Yet that position is challenged in the Sun, who announce how much Chelsea and Spurs need to pay to convince United to sell:

Anthony Martial has a stunning £100million price-tag on his head.

His deal to bring him to United three years ago was worth up to £60million with add-ons, with United wanting much more for him to leave for Chelsea or Tottenham.

For the record, there was no discussion of Man United inserting a buy-clause in any Martial deal in the Sun.
