It was a poor start to the season for Juventus, but they have clawed their way up the table. The Bianconeri have a realistic chance of making the top four, as they currently sit a point behind fourth-placed Atalanta. Winning the Scudetto is realistically not an impossible dream. Inter Milan are nine points ahead of the Old Lady, but we’ve seen teams blow bigger leads.
Juventus were enveloped in turmoil last season, but Massimiliano Allegri should get a good rating for the job he has done. Allegri has tried to institute a new culture at the club following the departure of Cristiano Ronaldo.
As the season winds down the final half, Allegri wants reinforcements to bolster the squad and increase the chances of qualifying for the Champions League next season. Juventus have eyes for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial.
Martial wanted in Turin
Manchester United is in some mess with several players not pulling their weight. Manchester United would love to dispose of some of these players, but their mega salaries have been a stumbling block.
Thanks to the ineffectiveness of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, United are stuck with a high wage bill.
Anthony Martial has attracted attention from Juventus after Sevilla pulled out due to the high demands by Manchester United. According to reports, Juventus are speakingctly with the Red Devils for the loan signing of Anthony Martial.
Tuttomercatoweb reports that the interest of the Bianconeri in the French forward who wants to leave Old Trafford is not new, and negotiations are already between thectors of both clubs. Juventus want the striker to join the Bianconeri on a dry loan for six months. It means that Juventus would cover his salary for the rest of the season and would retain no option to buy.
Manchester United are digging in on their position that made Sevilla walk away from a deal. The Old Trafford outfit want to receive a massive loan fee for Anthony Martial, and that may force Juventus to walk away from the negotiating table.
Anthony Martial has had a torrid season and wants out of Old Trafford. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the French forward enjoyed little game time, and his situation has not improved with the interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
Recently, Ralf Rangnick claimed that Anthony Martial was training separately, as he did not want to be part of the squad against Aston Villa. Martial has denied the allegations but still wants a move away from United. The French forward has already rejected offers from Premiership sides as he looks for a move away from England.
Sevilla are still interested in the forward, but the heavy demands by Manchester United are putting them off. Juventus are not ready to pay a loan fee, leaving United in a conundrum.
Anthony Martial has made only ten appearances for Manchester United this season. Ralf Rangnick has not counted on him as he tries to find out the players who are worthy of the United shirt.
Anthony Martial joined the Old Trafford outfit from AS Monaco in 2015 for €60 million.
