The French striker is looking for a way out of Old Trafford during the January transfer period and can be offered a clean sheet in Italy
Anthony Martial has made it clear that he wants to leave Manchester United during the winter transfer period, and GOAL can confirm that Juventus has contacted its representatives.
The French national team striker fought for playing time in the 2021-2022 season, playing in only 10 matches in all competitions and not playing since 2 December.
With a clear need to start over and United ready to make a deal if they make the right offer, clubs across Europe are wondering how to make a proven 26-year-old player.
Will Juventus step in?
The giant of Serie A has contacted Martial’s environment but has not yet approached United.
After Federico Chiesa was disqualified for the remainder of the season due to a knee injury, the Bianconers are eager to find reinforcements in the attack.
Massimiliano Allegri has entrusted his board with the task of getting him another frontman before the next recruitment deadline, and Martial is in sight.
However, the interest of the rival must be taken into account, Sevilla and Barcelona in La Liga are also considering their options when it comes to a player who scored 79 goals in United colors.
What did you tell United?
Red Devils interim chief Ralf Rangnick was once again asked about Martial’s future at a pre-match press conference that planned his clash with the United Premier League against Brentford on Wednesday.
After a 2-2 draw at Aston Villa, the German suggested that the losing attacker asked not to be left out of his travel plans in the West Midlands.
Asked about the situation, whether Martial could take action against the Bees, Rangnick said, “I had a personal conversation with him on Sunday about what happened and how I saw the whole situation. The matter is now resolved.
“He didn’t train yesterday and the day before yesterday, he will probably train today and after the workout I will decide if I have been nominated or not. Let’s see what happens then. ”

“Martial has made it clear to Rangnick and the board that he wants to leave United this month.
“He has been left out of the United Premier League all-day game since early December after talking to Rangnick detailing his plans to leave.
“GOAL understands that the club is willing to let the French attacker leave on loan in the coming weeks, but only if a club arrives with a suitable offer.
“Understandably, United wants a club to pay Martial’s total salary in excess of £ 200,000 a week, and they’re also looking for a loan fee that could go up to £ 6 million.
“It’s understandable that Seville was interested in lending Martial for the rest of the campaign, but their offer was rejected as they could only afford half the salary.
“Rangnick and Martial had a‘ misunderstanding ’about attending the villa last weekend. The German manager wanted to name the French striker on the bench, but he believed the player was unwilling to pick out what the French national team denied.
“Rangnick says the case has been resolved but has not confirmed whether United will travel to Brentford for his next league match.”
