Liverpool fans have been discussing which Manchester United players they would take at Anfield, and plenty are calling for a shock move for Anthony Martial, who is out of contract next summer.
Liverpool added Xherdan Shaqiri to their incredible attack this summer, but many fans still feel they need a bit more depth to compete with Manchester City.
Manchester United’s Martial was heavily linked with an Old Trafford exit throughout the transfer window, and while a deal with their arch-rivals is of course incredibly unlikely, fans are dreaming about the Frenchman’s potential under Jürgen Klopp.
The German has a habit of turning talented attackers into better players with superior confidence, particularly in front of goal, and there is a feeling that Martial has some serious untapped potential.
The 22 year-old ha scored 24 times in 86 Premier League appearances for the Red Devils, but has never truly been unleashed under Jose Mourinho.
The Frenchman’s contract runs out next summer, but the club does have the option to extend it for a further season.
You can find some of the best Twitter reactions down below, where Reds’ fans are fantasising about adding another young talent…
