Roma to make shock move for Anthony Martial… It won’t happen

Transfer season is always a delight as you can hear or read crazy things about different players or teams who have made shock moves. As going through the papers today, there’s one particular news that I was surprised to see. Apparently, Anthony Martial is set to leave Manchester United and join AS Roma according to Gazzetta Dello Sport.

The Roman club is interested in signing the French through a loan deal for the new season. According to what The Mirror (not a reliable source) writes, Manchester United are not interested in that kind of deal and will be looking for a permanent in case the move is set to happen. The relationship between Jose Mourinho and Anthony Martial seems to be calm and there’s no logical why a deal like this would be likely to happen.

Manchester United have signed Romelu Lukaku who’s a striker, however, they won’t permit Martial leave as the wing position is in serious need for new players. The Italian’s club situation is though understandable; a class player like Martial and considering his age, who wouldn’t want such player? Despite the problems he has had, Martial is indeed talented and is aiming to fight for his place in the team, at Manchester United.

Well, at least that’s what we can guess from his social media posts, as he has remained silent for the rumours. Another reason why that deal won’t happen is Jose Mourinho. He has been a critic of his lifestyle, probably the player’s personal problems affected him, but Mourinho seems determined to make him a history of success and he doesn’t take no for an answer.

One last thing we must discuss though is the prize the media has set, the one hypothetically Manchester United are looking forward to selling him. A player who was bought/signed for the future won’t simply go with that prize, if he is though, never mind a loan deal.

The number that is being reported goes around £30 million, that leaves fans a bit surprised of how Mourinho could accept that deal. Which is why I am led to believe that this won’t happen. The player seems happy, his agent is remaining quiet at the time, so no issues for the manager as well. One problem could be whether he will have more space than last season. It depends on the preparations of the game and his performances. Mourinho wouldn’t mind the Martial of two seasons ago. Pace is something he doesn’t lack and the only issue is his defensive skill. He has tried and improved, which is great.

Martial is currently with the team in the USA for the pre-season tour, which means that these talks are purely inventions of the media to drag some attention after the signing of Lukaku. Time will tell, but for the time being, he is part of Jose Mourinho’s team for the new season. Those who aren’t part of his plans were left out from the traveling squad. The Frenchman wants this and these reports do seem about stupid and especially would cause a distraction for the player. Hopefully, we will only mind his own business.
