Once seen as Manchester United’s next great hope, especially after the club paid over £45m from Monaco, the Frenchmen has found it harder and harder to get game time at Old Trafford. Featuring in just seven games this season and his only goal coming against Everton, Martial will know that to get minutes, he’ll have to leave the Theatre of Dreams.
With representative Philippe Lamboley confirming that Martial wants to leave in January, the rumours started flying in. Whilst Juventus seemed early front runners to bring Martial to Turin, Newcastle now seems a likely option too.
Rumours have circled that Newcastle are willing to pay over £1m a month, meaning a move to the North East might be the perfect opportunity for the former Monaco forward to revitalise his career, however, it would be an almighty step down.
The club are also keeping tabs on Jesse Lingard.
