Sources in Spain have reported that Real Madrid are ready and willing to spend in the region of £80 million on a player they consider one of the best in his position.
United forward Anthony Martial is preferred by Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane who is currently under fire following a bad start to the season.
With Ronaldo turning 33 come February, and an obvious decline in his ability, especially in the Spanish La Liga, the Los Blancos are looking for young players who can fill the boots of returning 400 goals in seven years.
Players like Karim Benzema, Luka Modric, and Gareth Bale are also either leaving the Santiago Bernabeu and are aging fast.
Although, Anthony Martial plays few games at United, Jose Mourinho isn’t willing to let go of the multi-talented youngster.
The player himself, Anthony Martial, will be anticipating playing for Real Madrid under a manager he considers a legend of the game – Zinedine Zidane. His countenance since Jose Mourinho took the reins at United, has been that of an unhappy player which could be a good point for Madrid.
Zidane will be hoping a huge amount can trigger the player’s signature as he loves his playing style. It has also been rumoured that the 1998 World Cup winner relishes playing Martial alongside youngsters such as Marco Asensio, Ceballos and Isco.
