Manchester United 'offer Real Madrid Anthony Martial' as Karim Benzema replacement

Manchester United 'offer Real Madrid Anthony Martial' as Karim Benzema replacement

Anthony Martial could be on his way out of Man United.

Question marks surround Anthony Martial's future at Manchester United and he could be on the move this summer to Real Madrid, according to the latest speculation.

The 27-year-old Frenchman has been at United since 2015, when he moved to Old Trafford from Monaco for £36million.

He has scored 88 goals in 300 games for the Old Trafford club in that time, but it seems unlikely that he will be at United for much longer.

His contract at United expires next summer, though the club do have an option to extend that deal by a further 12 months.

United have strengthened the striking department this summer with the arrival of Rasmus Hojlund, and Martial could be behind the Dane in the pecking order once the new signing is fit.

Martial is one of several United squad players who could yet be sold with a few days of the transfer window remaining in a bid to bring funds in, which could then be used for fresh acquisitions.

As well as Martial, Harry Maguire and Donny van de Beek are others who could potentially be moved on before the window closes for business on September 1.

Martial spent the second half of the 2021/22 season in La Liga on loan at Sevilla - and he could be on the move again to Spain.

According to Fichajes, United have offered Martial to Real Madrid on an initial loan deal with the option to buy the Frenchman for €15m, which works out at around £12.8m, though the buying option is not compulsory for the Spanish club.

The Santiago Bernabeu outfit are in need of bringing in reinforcements at the top end of the pitch following the departure earlier this summer of veteran striker Karim Benzema to Al-Ittihad in Saudi Arabia.

Carlo Ancelotti's side also hold a big interest in Paris Saint-Germain striker Kylian Mbappe, though he would cost a lot more to purchase than Martial would, and that might help United should they wish to get Martial off the books at Old Trafford.
