Manchester United fans will be drowning their sorrows in the Transfer Tavern after their defeat to West Bromwich Albion, and they could be resigned to losing one of their attackers.
The Red Devils’ defeat to the Baggies at the weekend officially confirmed Manchester City as Premier League Champions, which left the locals feeling a bitter taste in their mouths. However, the news that one of their young attackers wants to leave Old Trafford could rock them even further.
According to reports in Italy, Calcio Mercato are claiming Anthony Martial is ready to quit the club after falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho and Juventus are rumoured to be interested in signing the France international.
The 22-year-old has just over a year left on his current deal, however, it is thought the Bianconeri are prepared to wait and try to sign him on a free deal, as they have been trying to do with Liverpool star Emre Can. The news that the French winger wants to leave Old Trafford will have alerted many sides, with the likes of Bayern Munich also keeping an eye on the situation, it could prove difficult for Juventus to get him on a free.
The Manchester United locals in the Tavern will be hoping that they can get a huge transfer fee for Martial should he decide to leave, although they will be expecting the club to bring someone in who can fill the void the 22-year-old would leave, regardless of the players they already have at the club.
