Anthony Martial has been deemed surplus to requirement at Manchester United as Mourinho hopes to sign Ivan Perisic from Inter Milan.
Manchester United manager, Jose Mourinho, wants to sign Croatia winger, Ivan Perisic, before he lets Anthony Martial leave.
Martial, who has returned from United’s pre-season tour of the US for the birth of his second child, has been given the green light to leave Old Trafford, but only on their terms.
United want at least £70million for Martial and are determined to sell him abroad, despite interest from Premier League rivals Chelsea and Tottenham.
Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich are also in the hunt for Martial and it is understood the 22-year-old forward would favour a move to the French capital, where his partner, Melanie Da Cruz, has given birth.
With the Premier League transfer window closing on August 9, United are under pressure to bring in a replacement for Martial, before letting him go, with Inter Milan star Perisic top of the list.
United boss Jose Mourinho tried to buy Perisic last summer for a fee of around £40m, but the winger’s impressive 2018 World Cup campaign in Croatia’s march to the final, has pushed his value up to the £60m mark.
In other news, Arsenal midfielder, Jeff Reine-Adelaide has joined French Ligue 1 side, Angers on a permanent deal. The 20-year-old spent the second half of last season on loan at Angers.
Reine-Adelaide has now left the Emirates for good. The midfielder made a total of eight senior appearances for the Gunners during his time at the North London club.
His move to the French topflight league will be the second time this summer a midfielder has left Arsenal after Jack Wilshere left the Gunners to join West Ham earlier this month.
A statement on the Arsenal’s website reads: “We would like to wish Jeff all the best for the future.”
