La Liga club eye transfer raid on Manchester United after missing out on Chelsea star

Sevilla are reportedly interested in a transfer move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial as an alternative to Chelsea striker Alvaro Morata.

According to ESPN, the France international is now in their sights as they consider a somewhat ambitious swoop for the 23-year-old who is now said to be happy at Old Trafford since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Jose Mourinho as manager.

Martial may, however, feel a move away is still a decent idea for his prospects of more first-team football in his preferred centre-forward role.

Having been shifted out wide more often than not at United, Martial could be given a more key role leading the line for Sevilla, without the likes of Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford to worry about as competition.

The former Monaco man is, however, a big fan favourite with Red Devils supporters so they will surely be eager not to see him leave as he surely still as his best years ahead of him.
