Anthony Martial is reportedly considering his future at Manchester United.
The France international will see his current deal at Old Trafford expire in the summer of 2019, and it is understood that he is not prepared to sign a fresh contract as things stand.
A number of clubs have been credited with an interest in the former Monaco youngster, and according to The Sun, United are lining up a deal for Watford’s Richarlison as they prepare for Martial to leave in this summer’s transfer window.
Martial impressed during United’s 2-0 win at Bournemouth in the Premier League on Wednesday night, but the 22-year-old is expected to be back on the bench for Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final with Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
Martial, who is valued at £58.5m by transfermarkt.co.uk, took to Twitter following the Bournemouth match – posting an picture of himself celebrating United’s second goal with Romelu Lukaku and Paul Pogba.
As expected, the club’s supporters were on hand to once again reveal their desperation when it comes to the attacker’s future.
A selection of the Twitter reaction can be seen below:
