The £75m signing of Romelu Lukaku has certainly had the Manchester United fans here in the Transfer Tavern talking.
Surely, the Belgian will become first-choice striker at Old Trafford following such a blockbuster move, though a certain Marcus Rashford will surely refuse to go away so easily. That leaves Anthony Martial – a £58m man – somewhat out in the cold.
Not always favoured by Jose Mourinho, the 22-year-old remains a favourite of our resident Red Devils. So, even though he’s not a guaranteed starter at the Theatre of Dreams, reports from Turkey have sparked surprised our drinkers.
According to Milliyet, the self-proclaimed ‘Special One’ has given a green light to his potential loan exit, with Turkish giants Besiktas reportedly set to travel to England to discuss a potential deal.
A delegation is believed to be due on these shores within the week as they attempt to lure him to Istanbul for a campaign, with the club also able to offer Champions League football to the former Lyon trainee.
Still, many of our local United fans are eager to see Martial remain, believing him to be key to their success next term, if he can get back on track after a relatively mixed season last time out.
