As Amad position develops, Manchester United makes a final decision on Anthony Martial’s move.
Anthony Martial and Amad have been linked with transfers away from Manchester United ahead of the summer transfer window closing.
According to sources, Manchester United has chosen to keep Anthony Martial for the upcoming season, but Amad could be loaned out. Following Jadon Sancho’s move to Old Trafford, both players may battle for playing time. And now we know what Ole Gunnar Solskjaer thinks about the pair.
Manchester United paid £73 million to sign England international Sancho from German heavyweights Borussia Dortmund this summer.
While that may be the case, the Telegraph reports that United have no plans to allow Martial go before the transfer season closes on August 31.
The France international has been linked with a move to Anthony Martial’s Serie A giants, who are set to lose Romelu Lukaku to Chelsea.
Spurs have also been linked with a move for the forward, who has been with the club since his arrival from Monaco in 2015.
However, according to the report, United has decided to keep Martial for the upcoming season.
