One of the few bright spots of the season for the Manchester United fans that frequent the Transfer Tavern has been a certain Anthony Martial.
The previously little known Frenchman has emerged as one the club’s most important players since joining in what looked like a ridiculously expensive deal over the summer.
Imagine the shock on the faces of the Red Devils in tonight then following reports from Don Balon that Barcelona are weighing up a blockbuster move for the 20-year old.
It is claimed that while the Blaugrana boast one of the most dazzling attacks in world football, their technical staff are already planning for the future.
Martial cost an initial £36.6m, potentially rising to £58m, so any deal is likely to be earth shatteringly expensive.
Still, there’s little doubt the Catalan giants tend to have quite the pull on players should they ever firm up their interest.
It is also understood that they are running the rule of both Romelu Lukaku and Harry Kane, who’ve proved to be ferociously potent marksmen in the Premier League this season too.
Can Man United afford to lose Martial? Is he destined for one of the La Liga big boys?
