The Manchester United supporters in the Transfer Tavern will be devastated if this transfer materialises.
According to Spanish outlet, Mundo Deportivo, Barcelona are keeping their eye on Manchester United’s Anthony Martial, much to the frustration of the punters propping up the bar. Indeed, he’s one of the most popular players amongst our resident Red Devils.
The talented Frenchman has been at United for two full seasons, yet at times he’s struggled to get a starting spot under the leadership of Jose Mourinho. This has prompted several transfer rumours linking him with clubs such as Premier League rivals, Arsenal.
Nevertheless, the 21-year-old has opted to stay with the Red Devils, and he’s been in magnificent form this season.
The Frenchman has already scored three goals and provided two assists in seven league games for United this season. Also, the former Monaco star has scored one goal and provided two assists in the Champions League.
Anthony Martial is undeniably gifted, and he’s one of the most exciting young players in Europe. Manchester United would be foolish to let him go.
