PSG prepare to offer Martial a Di Maria-esque exit from Man United
Anthony Martial’s disappointing time at Manchester United could soon be coming to an end, with the press claiming French giants PSG are eyeing up a move for the winger.
A two-goal salvo against West Ham this week has been the highlight of an underwhelming second campaign for Martial at Old Trafford, who arrived amid plenty of hype in a £42m move from Monaco last summer.
A solid debut campaign with 11 goals hinted at a bright future for Martial at the Theatre of Dreams, but the 20-year-old has failed to kick-on second time around.
With just one goal and two assists from eight Premier League appearances this term, the French international is being repeatedly linked with a move away from Manchester, and hasn’t featured in three of the side’s last four Premier League games.
PSG are the latest side to be tipped to launch a bid, with the French side looking to kick-start their title campaign.
The Paris outfit face stiff competition from Nice and Monaco for the Ligue 1 title this year, and Martial could be the man to boost their chances.
It’s unlikely United would sell for much less than what they spent 18 months ago, but there is precedent here.
Angel di Maria similarly fell out of sorts at Old Trafford after a £63m move from Real Madrid, and PSG swept in to sign the Argentinean at a £10m loss to the Premier League outfit.
Now playing some of his best football once again, the move has clearly been a good one for Di Maria, and that could be the blueprint for Martial should he be forced to consider his future in England.
Martial will be hoping his brace in midweek will help him feature in Mourinho’s plans this weekend when United head to Everton.
Hoping to use their midweek win as a launchpad, the Red Devils are 21/20 for three points at Goodison Park on Sunday.
