The France forward wants out of Old Trafford, and Chelsea are said to be working on a deal for him
Chelsea are reportedly working on a deal to sign Anthony Martial, the Manchester United and France forward.
talkSPORT told you earlier today how the Blues are targeting Martial, 22, as a potential replacement for Eden Hazard, who has been linked with a big-money move to Real Madrid.
United do not want to lost Martial for anything less than £90m, and the Old Trafford club actually intend on triggering a one-year extension in the France international’s contract to tie him down until the end of June 2020. Martial’s current deal expires next summer.
However, there are suggestions a deal could be agreed between Chelsea and United which sees Willian – a known target of Jose Mourinho’s – sent to Old Trafford as part of a player plus cash deal for Martial.
The proposed signing of Martial has many Chelsea fans thrilled, and some supporters took to social media site Twitter to react to the news the Blues could buy a player regarded as one of the best youngsters in the world.
