It is fair to say that Anthony Martial failed to fulfill the promise he showed at the start of his Manchester United career. In 2015, Man Utd spent £36m to sign Martial from Monaco. He was seen as a promising young talent that United is known to nurture and develop. He scored in his first two games for the club and that iconic goal in his debut against Liverpool at Old Trafford will be remembered by the fans of the Red Devils. However, injuries ruined his Manchester United career as he struggled to stay fit. Also, at times when he was fit, he was struggling to score goals. With Rasmus Hojlund in the squad, it is unlikely that Martial will get game time at Manchester United. So, he would look to love away from Old Trafford. According to the latest Man Utd transfer news, Fenerbahce are interested in signing Martial.

Man Utd transfer news: Anthony Martial to Fenerbahce for £6.8m

Manchester United were looking to offload Anthony Martial from the last few seasons. However, due to his high wages, United failed to sell the French striker. During his unimpressive loan spell at Sevilla, United had to cover the majority of his wage. However, according to the Daily Mail, Manchester United have finally found a suitor for Anthony Martial. Turkish club Fenerbahce are interested in signing Anthony Martial for a fee of around £6.8m. They want a permanent move for the French international. If Martial signs for the Turkish club, he will be playing alongside his former teammate at Manchester United Fred who moved to Fenerbahce in the summer. Anthony Martial's contract with Manchester United will expire at the end of the season. So, the Red Devils will look to cash in on the striker in the January transfer window. Thus, Man Utd transfer news on Anthony Martial will come thick and fast in the coming days.
