Man Utd Transfer News: Monaco eye Martial, Ibrahimovic pay cut, anxious to get Alli

Manchester United star Anthony Martial has been eyed up by Monaco this summer.

That’s according to French journalist Loic Tanzi, who claims the Ligue 1 champions made an enquiry over the forward’s availability.

On Twitter, RMC and SFR reporter Tanzi revealed: “Monaco have enquired about Diego Costa, A. Martial and Alexis Sanchez.


“The search for a striker leads to talks with [Kasper] Dolberg.”

Martial has enjoyed a strong start to the new campaign, bagging as a substitute in United’s 4-0 wins over West Ham and Swansea.

But his long-term future has been uncertain with the 21-year-old apparently unhappy with his peripheral role under Jose Mourinho last term.

Zlatan Ibrahimovic is willing to take a significant wage cut to return to Old Trafford on a short-term deal.

The former Barcelona and Inter Milan ace is wanted by MLS outfit LA Galaxy, but remains desperate to play for United again.

He had an operation in America and United bosses were told he would be out of action until the start of 2018.

But United allowed Ibrahimovic to return to the club’s training complex to carry out his recovery and he has kept in close contact with Jose Mourinho.

The Portuguese never wanted Ibrahimovic to leave the club in the first place and has told Old Trafford bosses he can still have an impact on the team.

Ibrahimovic earned in excess of £300,000-a-week last season – but is willing to accept a six month deal worth around £125,000-a-week.

United and Chelsea are reportedly interested in Tottenham star Dele Alli.

Last September chiefs convinced him to commit his long-term future to Mauricio Pochettino’s side by signing a new six-year contract.

Allí is paid £60,000 a week at Tottenham – significantly less than he could earn at one of Europe’s big boys.

The 21-year-old is apparently aware of how his wages compare unfavourably to those of players performing at his level elsewhere though.

The Daily Mail reckon that has prompted Alli, who’s admired by United and Chelsea, to consider parting ways with his long-time agent Rob Segal.

If the midfielder takes on a new representative, he could push for a huge pay rise.

The Daily Mail claim United, Chelsea and Manchester City are “anxious to sign” Alli – who Tottenham would not consider offers for this month.
