Fenerbahce has set its sights on Manchester United striker Anthony Martial as one of their key transfer targets in the upcoming New Year.
Currently leading the Super Lig, the Turkish giants are keen on bolstering their attacking lineup by adding Martial to the mix, alongside Dusan Tadic and Edin Dzeko.
As reported by Turkish outlet Takvim, Fenerbahce envisions Martial’s signing as a catalyst for a new chapter in the team’s approach to both domestic and European competitions.
The belief is that Martial’s presence could positively influence the squad, elevating overall motivation and team performance.
However, one might wonder if they’ve been closely following Martial’s performance in a United shirt over the past 2-3 years.
Regardless, ongoing negotiations between Fenerbahce and Manchester United are mentioned in the report. Fenerbahce, aiming to build on their positive relations with United after acquiring Fred in the summer, and selling Altay Bayindir to the Reds as a backup goalkeeper for Andre Onana.
The initial offer from Fenerbahce is rumored to be around €8 million, but there’s room for negotiation. Some suggest United should consider pushing for €10 million, seizing the opportunity to cash in on the somewhat underwhelming performances of the Frenchman.
