Galatasaray are interested in making a move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial before their transfer deadline this week.
The Lowdown: Martial out of favour
The Frenchman has had an up-and-down seven years at Old Trafford, producing moments of quality but also struggling to match the hype when he arrived in 2015.
Martial has still only featured for 45 minutes in the Premier League this season, admittedly not helped by injuries, and it appears as though he could be down the attacking pecking order under Erik ten Hag, especially after the signing of Antony from Ajax.
A new claim even suggests that his time as a United player could be coming to an end in the very near future.
The Latest: Galatasaray keen on move
According to Yeni Acik TV on Twitter, Galatasaray are keen on signing Martial before the Turkish transfer window closes on Thursday evening:
“Galatasaray is interested in Anthony Martial of Manchester United and Adama Traore of Wolves. Galatasaray wants to add one of these two players to its squad.”
The Verdict: Right time to leave?
In truth, Martial’s overall spell at United should be deemed a disappointment, given the money spent on him and the expectations that many had when he joined.
Is Maguire good enough for Manchester United?
Yes, he's just having a bad time!
No, he needs to go!
With injury problems not going away and consistency still lacking, however, selling Martial makes sense, though perhaps they would be best placed waiting until January when Ten Hag can bring in an adequate replacement.
