Turkish side Fenerbahce are reportedly interested in Manchester United forward Anthony Martial and will make a move on one condition.

According to Turkish journalist Sercan Hamzaoğlu, the Turkish side would be interested in the French forward whose future at Old Trafford remains uncertain.

Martial, who earns £250,000 a week according to Sky Sports, has had his fair share of injury concerns in the past few seasons and the signing of Rasmus Hojlund from Atalanta may well put an end to his United career.

Fenerbahce have reportedly agreed a fee with United for Fred, according to Fabrizio Romano, and could be about to try and sign another United player.

Martial situation

According to the tweet from the Turkish journalist, Fenerbahce will push for Martial if they fail to sign Turkish forward Cengiz Ünder.

The former Leicester forward, currently at French side Marseille, has been linked with the Turkish giants, so a deal to sign Martial may well be far from easy.

The French forward has reportedly told the Turkish side his wage demands which are believed to be £4.3 million a year on a three-year contract.

However, perhaps a concerning element of the deal is the fee. The Turkish journalist claims that Fenerbahce could sign the French forward for free, which would be a disastrous deal for United.

Should United let him go?

United currently have just two senior centre-forwards, this is following the signing of Hojlund. Letting Martial go, however, may well be the smartest decision that United and Erik ten Hag could make.

The Frenchman started just 11 Premier League games last season and just two Premier League games the season before.

United may well target another striker were Martial to leave, although if United don’t receive a fee for the former AS Monaco man, they may well struggle to source a replacement.

There have been tentative links to Mehdi Taremi according to Jornal De Noticias but with Harry Kane set to move to Bayern Munich, the Iranian could be on his way to Tottenham Hotspur according to Gianluca Di Marzio.
