Inter Milan want to sign Manchester United star for £ 50million Anthony Martial to replace Romelu Lukaku, who is getting closer to Chelsea return


Inter Milan are hoping to replace Chelsea-linked Romelu Lukaku with Manchester United striker Anthony Martial.

Lukaku is set to seal a return to Stamford Bridge, the Blues have reportedly paid £ 97million for his services.

And the Sun report that Inter will look to Lukaku’s former Manchester United team-mate at Martial to replace him.

It is understood that the Italian champions want to sign Martial on a one-season loan, but Man United would prefer a permanent deal. However, the Red Devils would accept the loan option if it included a commitment to buy next summer.

Both clubs have done business in the past with Man United previously leaving Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez to travel to San Siro.

Martial, who is said to earn £ 200,000 a week, has three more years on his contract at Old Trafford, plus a 12-month option.

Martial fell down the pecking order at Man United

The 25-year-old’s place in the squad is far from assured, even before the knee ligament injury that ended his season in March.

Edinson Cavani is their main scorer while Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and new recruit Jadon Sancho are all ahead of Martial in the pecking order.

Martial joined United from Monaco in 2015 and made an immediate impact with a goal on his debut against Liverpool.

But his Man United career has been cut short for the past two years. He only managed four goals in 17 Premier League starts last season.

Speaking after Saturday’s 4-0 friendly win over Everton, boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer admitted: “Anthony had a rough time with injuries.

“He trained well with us, but as players who have been out for a while, they need more clarity, need more work.

“He tried to do the right thing; it didn’t come out all the time, but it’s better than you sometimes fear when he’s been injured for five months – since March.
