Tuttosport have a great big article on Anthony Martial in their Wednesday edition. The Turin newspaper are increasingly pushing the idea of the Frenchman moving to Juventus in the summer window, and believe they have renewed reason to be optimistic.
It’s stated ‘all indications’, from France and England, show that Jose Mourinho will let Martial leave at the end of the season, the Manchester United manager allowing a transfer to actually happen.
At this point, it’s worth noting Tuttosport aren’t clear what they mean by ‘all indications’, but it could well be the claims from France’s RMC about a renewal being rejected and a transfer being possible, and the constant English chatter of the player not being entirely happy under Mourinho.
Whatever it is, Tuttosport are sold on it.
It’s explained middlemen are currently at work trying to start the building blocks of a deal. Juventus want to know how feasible it is for Martial to move to them, with it being stated Barcelona and Bayern Munich are also keen on the player.
Paul Pogba and Blaise Matuidi are said to have told Martial positive things about Juventus, and that gives hope the player would turn down better financial offers from elsewhere.
Whilst this is all packaged up together to make a big story, there doesn’t really feel anything especially new or concrete. But it has to remembered that RMC did launch the idea of a exit, and given how good they’ve been on Martial reporting to date, it’s probably that which is pushing the claim of a Manchester United exit.
