End Of Martial? Man Utd Ready £35m Bid for 19 Goals, 11 Assists Classy Winger

Manchester United still do not have a proper left winger in their team. Anthony Martial is the best they have in that position in my opinion, but manager José Mourinho is seemingly not a fan of the former AS Monaco star. Hence it is not a surprise that the agent of Martial has come out to say his client could be on the way out of Old Trafford this summer.

And it seems Manchester United are also preparing for the exit of the French international. This is because the club are said to be interested in signing highly-rated PSV Eindhoven winger Hirving Lozano. The Mexican star has also been linked with a move to Arsenal and Liverpool.

Lozano scored 19 goals and provided 11 assists for his teammates in the Dutch Eredivisie last season and was one of Mexico’s best players at this summer’s World Cup. United are said to be interested in making a bid of €40 million (£35m) for the player in the coming days.

If this report is true it will delight a lot of Manchester United fans. The Mexican is a versatile player who can play equally on both the left and the right flanks, and be deployed as a false number nine as well. He would certainly be an upgrade on what United currently have to offer, especially down the left wing, which is his primary role. His signing could force Alexis Sánchez to be deployed as a right winger for United, where he used to place for Barcelona. Personally, I think the combination of Sánchez and Lozano down the wings could be very exciting for the Red Devils.

The 22-year-old and Sánchez could easily switch roles in game which would confuse Manchester United’s opponents each week. Alternatively, Lozano could play in place of Alexis Sánchez should Mourinho want to rest the Chilean superstar, or when he is unavailable. Hirving Lozano is a quality winger who offers goalscoring ability from both wings, should any club be successful in luring him away from PSV this summer.

With Arsenal and Liverpool said to be interested, United need to act quickly on a deal if they do not want it hijacked. Liverpool could do with him especially with Sadio Mané likely to be representing Senegal at the African Cup of Nations in January.

    Why not the end of Sanchez, Martial is still a very good and skilful player being undermined by a useless manager who would sign his grandmother at centre half if he could. Besides new players United need a new approach and get back to the style that has proven successful for 20 years under Ferguson.

      United made a mistake signing Sanchez. Mourinho should have trusted Martial more. But I doubt he and United management will be ready to get rid of Sanchez so fast and I doubt there will be buyers for him considering his wage package.

    The worse mistake Mourinoh made was signing aging Alexis..he’s not the united type..Martial and Gonzalez would bring spark..sell Sanchez

    This among many other things is what brings me to wonder if Mourinho has an hidden agenda to do as much damage as he can to United while still playing the part of an interested party. He is buying ageing players, he has made derogatory remarks about beating United himself and it is should not be a surprise to lose a European Cup tie. He is constantly berating some of the younger players, playing them out of position to make a warped point, his pursuit of Alderweireld, Bonucci, Willian all seen their best years. Buying Sanchez with the contract he got from United was suicide as you say no one will consider signing him at his age for that amount, he would have to call himself Ronaldo for that to happen and he isn’t even a Jordon Clark.
