£70M Man United star asks to leave Red Devils as he eyes up Chelsea transfer

Man United and France star Anthony Martial has reportedly asked to leave Old Trafford this summer, with the player himself already having his heart set on a move to Chelsea.

This is according to Don Balon, who are noting that Martial has already been contacted by the Blues to inform him that he would have a big part to play at Stamford Bridge.

The report also states that Arsenal are keen on Martial, however a switch to north London wouldn’t tempt the forward as he sees Chelsea as an overall better side than the Gunners.

Martial has reportedly asked to leave United, and is keen on a move to Chelsea

The Mirror have reported very recently that Mourinho’s side are after at least £70M if they are to let Martial secure a move away from Old Trafford, a price that seems reasonable considering the potential the player has at his disposal.

Big things were expected of Martial when he first moved from Monaco in the summer of 2015, however the winger has failed to live up to these expectations.

The French international wasn’t been able to cement a solid place in United’s starting line-up this season just gone, something that we’re sure the player himself was annoyed with.

Following this news, it certainly seems like Martial’s days at United are numbered, something we’re sure Red Devils fans didn’t expect to see when they first signed him three years ago.
