Manchester United could be set to lose Anthony Martial as interest from Spain emerges. Both Barcelona and Real Madrid are said to be interested in the Frenchman.

The French prodigy has struggled to replicate the form shown in his maiden year, with Mourinho said to be losing patience with his lack of work ethic and commitment.

Despite a stellar performance in midweek against West Ham, time is running out for the forward to cement himself as a regular in Mourinho’s plans.

 

What are they offering?

The United manager is said to be keen to hear out the offers from both Spanish giants.

The Sun on Sunday are reporting that Barcelona would be willing to offer £60 million, with The Red Devils being able to make a profit.

Yet, Madrid’s offer appears to have attracted Mourinho: Zidane is willing to offer James Rodriguez as a swap deal, plus add-ons.

 

Real Madrid move likelier

With Mourinho sharing a warm relationship with the Madrid hierarchy, despite his acrimonious departure, it is more likely Martial would leave for the Bernabeu rather than the Nou Camp.

The Portuguese manager is said to have told Martial he has until January to prove himself.
