Feelers in the transfer market has it that United will be unwilling to sell the star player Anthony Martial to Chelsea but would rather move for a swap deal for Tottenham Belgian international Toby Alderweireld.
The French attacker has continuously grown frustrated with limited regular playing chances at United. The player who recently missed out on World Cup partly due to his lack of playing time with United is said to be desperate to get a new chance elsewhere.
The wingman has been in competition with Chilean forward Alexis Sanchez and English star Marcus Rashford for starting berth position.
According to Dailystar, the future of the 22 year old would likely be sorted out this summer. With the option of getting Toby Alderweireld could be too juicy to reject. Mourinho would be glad to fix his defensive frailties as the Belgian could either play as a center back or a right back.
Anthony Martial’s agent has said Martial is not wanted as much at Manchester United and would prefer a move elsewhere for his player.
Jose Mourinho has grown frustrated with the lack of transfer activities and would prefer to close deals as soon as possible. The idea of having an already established premier league defender could prove too tempting for United to turn down.
Lets watch and see
