According to the report in British Media, Barcelona plan to sign Anthony Martial, with Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s return fuelling their hopes. Martial has enjoyed a stunning start to the new season for Manchester United, but despite his impressive form, the France international continues to be overlooked for a starting berth by Jose Mourinho.
How strong that interest is and whether Barcelona will make a move remains to be seen but it is certainly one worth keeping an eye on.
