Juventus leading the race to sign Anthony Martial this summer – report

by Leo Nieboer

Anthony Martial is no longer in Jose Mourinho’s plans for next season and the manager will let him find a new club in the summer, with Juventus leading the race to secure his signature, according to reports from Italy.

The Frenchman has only made three Premier League starts since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez over the January transfer window.

Numerous reports have claimed that Martial, in response, has grown frustrated with his situation and wants to leave in the summer.

And according to Italian media outlet Tuttosport, Juventus are acutely aware of Martial’s predicament and are ahead of the likes of Bayern Munich and Barcelona in pursuit of the 22-year-old’s signature.

Week by week, game by game, Martial is slowly but surely losing the look of a Man United player. This is now a second campaign in a row where the Frenchman has found himself on the periphery and it will surely be his last.

Mourinho, for one thing, clearly prefers Jesse Lingard, Alexis Sanchez, Marcus Rashford, Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata over him and will not guarantee a rise in minutes on the pitch next year.

And Martial, quite simply, is too good to be sulking on the bench at Old Trafford. Watching him decimate Serie A next season is going to be hard to say the least.
