Barcelona enter race to sign Anthony Martial

The LaLiga giants are interested in a move to sign Manchester United star Anthony Martial this summer, say reports.

It has been claimed by the Daily Mail Barcelona are considered a £60 million bid to sign Martial.

The same report says that Martial has reached a ‘stalemate’ with United about the possibility of signing a contract extension at Old Trafford.

Martial, who’s current deal is set to expire at the end of next season, wants reassurances about playing time but manager Jose Mourinho has been unable to give that to the France international.

The arrival of former Barcelona attacker Alexis Sanchez has made matters even worse for Martial, especially given the poor standards the Chilean has brought to the club since leaving Arsenal in January.

Martial has every right to be frustrated. He’s one of United’s more explosive players yet is being forced out the door due to game time.

A player of Martial’s age and pedigree needs to be playing every week. Unfortunately, at United that is not happening.
