Ligue 1 champions Paris Saint-Germain (PSG) reportedly have their eyes on the Red Devils’ forward, considering him as part of their efforts to bring more homegrown talent into the squad.

Martial, currently relegated to the role of the second-choice center-forward at Old Trafford, could be made available during the winter transfer window.

The arrival of Rasmus Hojlund at United for £72 million is seen as a potential catalyst for Martial’s departure, especially as the Frenchman has struggled, managing just 18 top-flight goals since the commencement of the 2020-21 season.

United is reportedly optimistic about Martial agreeing to a January move and is fielding interest from PSG, as well as other clubs like Inter Milan and Atletico Madrid.

Reports suggest that United is considering the possibility of strengthening their forward line in the winter window through Martial’s departure.

Interestingly, discussions with PSG could lead to a potential player-exchange agreement involving defender Nordi Mukiele.

United had been linked with the 26-year-old right-back in the summer transfer window, but a deal failed to materialize.

The inability to offload Harry Maguire or Raphael Varane meant that defensive restructuring had to be deferred, prioritizing adjustments to Erik ten Hag’s midfield.

Mukiele, signed by PSG from Red Bull Leipzig in the summer of 2022, has struggled to secure regular playing time.

With just two starts in Ligue 1 this season, totaling 205 top-flight minutes, and facing competition from Achraf Hakimi, the right-back could be open to a move.

United, in need of an upgrade in the right-back position, might see Mukiele as a viable option given his past form with Leipzig.

The Red Devils may explore the possibility of a swap deal with PSG, addressing their defensive concerns in the process.
