Jose Mourinho identifies highly sought after 22-year-old as possible Martial replacement – Report

Manchester United fans here in the Tavern are desperate for their side to bring in a few big name players in the summer, as they’ll look to secure the Premier League title next season. 

Interestingly, the Red Devils can still secure silverware in the current campaign after booking their place in the FA Cup final, with many of our local residents believing that this could be the start of something special. And, it appears that Jose Mourinho already has his eyes on a possible replacement for one of his star players, as according to the Sunday Times, Thomas Lemar is one of the players that Mourinho will consider replacing Anthony Martial with.

Jose Mourinho is happy to sanction a summer sale of Anthony Martial if the Frenchman decides to leave, with Monaco’s Thomas Lemar on the Portuguese manager’s list of possible replacements.

Encouragingly, Monaco are ready to sell the 22-year-old in the summer amid interest from Liverpool and Arsenal, but their asking price for the France international has now climbed to £90 million.

However, with Manchester United possibly receiving a significant sum of money for Martial in the summer if he decides to leave, Mourinho could then look to make Monaco an offer that’s difficult to turn down.

Landlord’s Verdict: 

Thomas Lemar has established himself as one of the most exciting players in the whole of world football this season, so there’s no surprise that Mourinho sees him as an ideal replacement for Martial. Although, United may struggle to pay the hefty price for his services if they don’t receive enough money for Martial, as the Portuguese boss is currently trying to create headroom in the club’s wage bill.
