Man United’s £50 million sale of Anthony Martial may prevent three players from leaving.
Anthony Martial appears to be eager to leave Manchester United in the final weeks of the summer transfer season.
Manchester United are reportedly willing to sell Anthony Martial to Inter Milan for £50 million, but Ole Gunnar Solskjaer may choose to keep three other players for the remainder of the season. With Romelu Lukaku on the verge of joining Chelsea, Inter are rumored to have chosen Martial as the guy they want to replace the Belgian striker.
Inter have had a long-standing interest in signing Martial, according to the Sun, dating back two years.
United is thought to desire a long-term deal, while a 12-month loan with a £50 million buyout option might be negotiated.
However, it looks that United is eager to talk with San Siro and would be willing to sell Martial.
If Martial leaves, it might have ramifications for the rest of the summer transfers at Old Trafford.
For this season, Jadon Sancho, Edinson Cavani, and Marcus Rashford are likely to be United’s main three up front, with Mason Greenwood a natural choice to fill in when needed.
Rashford’s shoulder operation, on the other hand, leaves a void on United’s left side, which Martial may have been anticipated to cover.
However, the possibility of Martial’s exit opens the door for others to step in, and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will want a variety of options to help out.
Paul Pogba’s future at the club has been questioned several times, yet he played a lot of forward for United last season.
The Frenchman’s contract at United expires in a year, and he will have to make a decision on his future.
However, if Martial leaves in the coming weeks, he may be called upon to fill in for him.
Jesse Lingard was expected to leave Manchester United this summer, but Solskjaer has made it clear that he wants the England international to stay at the club.
Although West Ham are still interested in signing Lingard, the versatile midfielder may use Martial’s potential departure as an opportunity to push his claim at United.
Amad was also rumored to be going on loan this summer to gather additional experience on a more regular basis.
