ML: €68m forward wants to leave Man Utd – Milan have been monitoring for some time

By Oliver Fisher -

AC Milan could try and pursue Anthony Martial given that he is actively looking to leave Manchester United when the transfer window reopens, a report claims.

It was back in September 2015 that Martial completed a move to United for £36m, potentially rising to £58m with add-ons (around €68m) and he penned a four-year contract with the option of another year. He has amassed 79 goals and 50 assists in 268 games for the Red Devils but has struggled for playing time for a while now, and it seems time for him to move on.

His agent Philippe Lamboley spoke to Sky Sports recently and made the wish of his client quite clear: “Anthony wants to leave the club as early as January. He doesn’t want to stay because his only purpose is to play. Soon I will have a meeting with the club.”

MilanLive reports that Martial has no intention of continuing his career with United and several clubs are ready to grab him. Milan have been watching over him for some time and while an official bid has never been formulated, this change in situation could make them reflect.

He could come in and play either as a centre-forward who is more mobile or as a winger. His price tag remains unknown, as his contract expires in 2024 and there is also an option for an automatic renewal for another year, but the Rossoneri seem to have thrown their hat into the ring.

  1. Why do they talk about players they will never sign. Milan won’t pay any money. They’ll just sign some 20 year old Serie B kid and hope they get lucky. That’s the Milan strategy.

  2. Milan are in a perfect position. They need fit back ups. Just buy some young players as back ups if players get injured. Milan are set with the squad as many return in January. It will be dum buying more and more injury prones. Many ppl complain CB as issue, ST as issue RW as issue if we look at reality the issue CM and CAM. Just and a good medical staff plus equipment. Rebic giroud leao all back up strikers for ibra. Messias, sal, krunic, giroud subs. If daniel proves hes our CAM les go. Kalulu can be CB if roman and tomori have issue. Calabria needs to LB. RB Kalulu florenzi sub. Now comes the issue CDM position. Only tonali is best but i want to see ben-ton maybe ben proves with tonali. Bcz frank and baka gtg. If bennacer doesnt proves then our january market should look into this issue. We now dont need to hype and chill out. Just buy all the good signing in summer. So we get some back ups like liverpool for CL. Forza Milan. Sempre Milan.

  3. STUPID DISCUSSION! 68mio? will they earliest have in 2029 (Piatek, Bonucci u all know) Gazidis has tried to make Milano happy again – please have a look to MANU next 2years 😉
