Bayern join Arsenal, Juventus in race for €50m Man Utd star

Oli Fisher

Bundesliga champions Bayern Munich have joined the race to sign a Manchester United forward, according to a report.

Italian outlet claim that the German side have become the latest club to show interest in Anthony Martial.

The 22-year-old is reportedly frustrated at his lack of game time this season under Jose Mourinho and wants to switch clubs in the summer.

Alexis Sanchez’s arrival at Old Trafford in January has meant that Martial is struggling to secure regular opportunities.

Reports on Sunday from French publication Le10 Sport claimed the forward is fed up with being consistently overlooked by Jose Mourinho when it comes to starting places at United and is willing to push through a move to Arsenal.

Juventus are set to rival Bayern for the Frenchman’s signature, and both clubs will look to take advantage of the fact his contract expires in 2019.

The problem for both sides however is that Manchester United are extremely reluctant to sell and will demand over €50million for the former Monaco man.
