Arsenal want to sign Man United star next summer

Arsenal want to sign Man United star next summer

And bookmakers Betfair have responded by pricing Arsenal as 8/1 favourites to sign the 22-year-old when the transfer window reopens in January.

Anthony Martial is hitting the headlines at the moment.

The Daily Mail wonder if Anthony Martial will ever win Jose Mourinho over.

Spurs are long-term admirers of the former Monaco forward, having failed to land him when he switched to United back in 2015.

The Blaugrana are said to have been rebuffed by Manchester United in timid enquiries regarding Martial's availability already, but, as per a number of reports this morning, the Red Devils have since softened their stance, and are ready to request one of Barca's key midfielders in a swap deal.

Arsenal are reported to have had an initial offer rejected by Old Trafford.


Manchester Evening News claim that the France global is "very content" at United following his barnstorming start to the campaign.

Mourinho is said to be a very keen admirer of Rakitic's abilities and claims are being made that the United boss will offer up the services of Martial in order to land the Croatian worldwide.

Rakitic had reportedly been unhappy under Valverde's managerial predecessor Luis Enrique, but seemingly has no intention of leaving or being sold with regular game time for his club at present.

Last month Mourinho said: "I see a great improvement in the person, in the mood, in the face, in the body language". He's a happy guy, he's working extremely well.

"He goes from the bench, even if it is for 10 minutes like in the last match at home, he tries to enjoy and try to give something in these extra minutes".
