Martial May Replace Mbappe At PSG

French giants Paris Saint-Germain have reportedly identified Man United flop, Anthony Martial, as a possible replacement for the unsettled Kylian Mbappe. Martial is understood to be keen to bring his torrid spell at United to an end, with his agent believed to have informed the club’s hierarchy the forward is keen to depart as early as January.

It now appears the Frenchman will not fall short of potential suitors, as PSG are already eyeing a potential swoop for the ex-Monaco star as a replacement for Mbappe, who is in the last few months of his contract at the Ligue 1 leaders. Having failed to live up to his potential at Old Trafford, Martial has seen active game time hard to come by at Old Trafford and does not expect the situation under the tutelage of interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

The 26-year-old has managed just two starts in the Premier League this season, with his only other start in the Champions League coming in their away win against Villareal. His agent, Philippe Lamboley, has since made it clear he is looking to exit United in the coming weeks and has set his sights on a possible January departure. ‘He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon,” Lamboley was quoted saying. According to French outlet RMC Sport, Lyon are also interested in signing Martial on loan next month.
