Martial

Borussia Dortmund are interested in signing Manchester United ace Anthony Martial, according to reports.

The German giants are believed to have identified the Frenchman as a potential replacement for star forward Erling Haaland, 21.

According to German outlet SPORT1, Dortmund are preparing to lose Haaland to a Champions League rival next summer.

Several clubs have been linked with the Norwegian sensation, including Premier League favourites Liverpool and United.

Haaland’s release clause is believed to be between £64million and £86m and this can reportedly be activated at the end of the season.

This is well below his market value and in the price range of many teams, allegedly forcing Dortmund to look for a replacement.

And it’s thought Martial is on their shortlist, with the player struggling for minutes at Old Trafford this term.

The 30-cap international has not started a Premier League game since Red Devils icon Cristiano Ronaldo returned to the club.

It’s believed Dortmund would ideally sign a player between the ages of 19 and 24, similar to Haaland’s profile.

Martial isn’t much older than that at 25 but the Bundesliga side could be put off by Man Utd’s asking price.

The Prem side paid an initial £36m for Martial in the summer of 2015 and it’s thought they want between £42m and £47m in return.

The ex-Monaco star’s wages could also be a stumbling block, with Dortmund unlikely to match his significant £250,000-a-week salary.

Dortmund are also reportedly considering Nice pair Kasper Dolberg, 23, and Amine Gouiri, 21, as potential Haaland replacements.

Martial has scored 55 goals in 171 Premier League games for Man Utd, winning the FA Cup, League Cup and Europa League.
