Chelsea are interested in signing Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, according to Sky Sports.
When you consider that both Willian and Eden Hazard are being linked with the exit door, it comes as no surprise that we’re being linked with players of Martial’s profile.
He’s a younger, more incisive Willian model, and a player who has the potential to be as good as Hazard in the future. He is a logical summer target for the Blues.
The difficulty is – Man United will be reluctant to sell. Especially to a direct rival. That should not, and will not, stop us trying, however.
Sky Sports believe that Chelsea are one of several clubs interested in signing Martial this summer. Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are also mentioned as potential suitors.
It’s claimed that Martial has already informed Jose Mourinho of his desire to leave. That’s unlikely to be enough to force through a move to Chelsea, though.
We’ll have to stump up the cash to have any chance of signing him. That may only be possible if Willian or Hazard are sold.
