It’s no secret that Atletico are interested in Anthony Martial. But who isn’t?
The latest reports in England suggest that Atletico Madrid are considering a move for Manchester United star Anthony Martial.
The 26-year-old has been subject to interest from various European clubs.
The France international joined Manchester United from Monaco for a fee in the region of 60 million euros in September 2015. His contract expires in the summer of 2024.
The forward has one goal in seven Premier League games this season.
The 26-year-old is considered to be one of the best forwards in France. Martial has also left his mark at the international stage after netting 2 goals in 30 senior appearances for the France national team.
The France international is out of the picture at Manchester United, which has opened the door for a potential exit.
The Spanish giants are looking to sign a forward and have identified the 26-year-old as potential transfer target.
The France international is thought to perfectly fit the profile of forward Simeone wants to target in the winter transfer window.
Atletico Madrid are in the market for just a handful of statement signings who can improve the first-team.
The former Monaco man is a dynamic forward, who possesses good technical skills and ball control. His versatile nature can help the manager to be more flexible with the formations.
According to the report, “Atletico Madrid are exploring the possibility of signing Anthony Martial. The Frenchman looks certain to leave Manchester United after he was publicly lambasted by manager Ralf Rangnick. Rangnick was furious over comments made by Martial’s agent to the press stating that the 26-year-old wanted to leave Old Trafford. Now according to Eurosport, Atleti are weighing up a January move for Martial. To entice United, the Spanish club will include right-back Kieran Trippier in the transfer. Trippier is keen to return to England and was linked to the Red Devils club last summer. Los Colchoneros have struggled in their La Liga title defence this season as they currently sit 13 points from leaders Real Madrid.”
