Paper Talk: Man Utd duo near £70m Juve moves; BVB eye Hammers man

Date published: Saturday 17th March 2018 9:25

Manchester United could lose two stars to Juventus this summer, while Liverpool target Alisson has seemingly set his sights on a move elsewhere, according to Saturday’s newspapers.



Juventus have met with Anthony Martial’s representatives as they bid to force through a move for the Manchester United attacker.

The Daily Mirror claims Juve officials are stepping up their hunt for the player after initially meeting with his agent earlier this month prior to their Champions League win against Tottenham at Wembley.

United reportedly value Martial at around £60million could sanction the sale if the player, who has found his first-team prospects limited since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, asks to leave.

Jose Mourinho would prefer to keep the former Monaco star but may be backed into a corner if the player and his agent make the move – and if Juventus meet their asking price.

Martial might not be the only United star heading to Turin this summer either, with reports also suggesting the Serie A leaders are also close to agreeing a £10million swoop for Matteo Darmian.

The double deal will be worth around £70million (€80million) to United.
