Juventus line up wantaway Man Utd striker Anthony Martial in loan transfer until end of the season

MANCHESTER UNITED forward Anthony Martial could reportedly join Juventus on a loan deal until the end of the season in January.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford in the New Year with his agent declaring he wants to depart.

His representative Philippe Lamboley told Sky Sports: "Anthony wishes to leave the club in January.

"He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon."

Lamboley's comments led United legend Gary Neville to urge the club to cash in on the Frenchman, who is tied down at the Theatre of Dreams until 2024.

News of Martial's desire to leave is said to have alerted Juventus, with La Gazzetta dello Sport stating the Italian outfit are keen to bring him to Turin.

They claim that the Old Lady are looking to sign the ex-Monaco ace on a loan deal, with the view to turn the move into a permanent stay.

Juventus are known to be in the market for a striker having failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo after allowing him to return to the Red Devils.

Only Paulo Dybala and Alvaro Morata have scored more than three goals for Juve this campaign.

And Massimiliano Allegri is determined to add firepower to his team with the Serie A giants in danger of missing out on the Champions League.

They currently sit in seventh spot – eight points off the top four.

And United are believed to be willing to part ways with Martial, who has been limited to just seven Premier League appearances this term.

Earlier this week, interim boss Ralf Rangnick was left irritated by the views of Martial's agent, as he insisted that if the player wants to leave, he needs to speak to him.

The German, 63, said: "If he really has the wish to go to another club, it should be the player who informs either the board or myself, whomever.

“I don’t communicate with agents via the media and the press. The player hasn’t spoken with me or with us about it.”

Martial has not been in any of Rangnick’s three matchday squads so far after claiming to have a knee injury.
