Juventus have a dream.
Anthony Martial, we can exclusively reveal through transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, with an added bonus: they want the Frenchman to be the next Emre Can, the next Pogba or Pirlo, the guy who they sign on a free.
But there’s a problem: as of last week, the Red Devils have offered the 21-year-old a new deal, one worth €9-10 million a year and which would keep the Frenchman at the Old Trafford way past the summer of 2019, when his current deal expires.
Despite playing a bit-part role under José Mourinho, it appears that the Old Trafford side is convinced that it can persuade the former Monaco man to stay.
Rather than let him sign with anyone when it comes to January, United seem intent on offering the French international a second chance.
It’s going to be very hard for Juventus, or Bayern, or the other clubs following Martial to get their man if this deal is made...
