Man Utd To Sell Martial To Recoup Jadon Sancho Fee

Anthony Martial is ‘surplus to requirements’ at Manchester United after the club announced the arrival of Jadon Sancho, Daily Star reports.

The French forward failed to pin down a regular spot in Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s team last season and United are now attempting to offload him ‘as soon as possible’ to recoup the money they spent on Sancho.

The Red Devils have placed a £50million price tag on the former AS Monaco forward, something which his suitors are finding hard to deal with.

Tottenham Hotspur, Aston Villa, Everton, and West Ham United are all linked with the French international.

If any club even remotely meets United’s valuation, it would mean that United won’t make a big loss on the £58million fee that they agreed to pay AS Monaco back in 2015.

And it would also mean recovering a significant amount of the £72.9million fee they’ve agreed to pay Borussia Dortmund for the 21-year-old English winger.
