Arsenal Want Out Of Favour Manchester United Star In Shocking Deal: Ideal Move For Both Parties?

Arsenal have been looking to make amends for a dissatisfactory season last term by getting some good players to strengthen their side for the next season. The North London club are well aware of the fact that they need to appease their fans who are not at all happy with their performance in the Premier League which saw them finish in the fifth position for the first time since 1998.

Recently, the Gunners have been persuading one of the finest prospects in modern day football in the form of French striker Kylian Mbappe. The 18-year-old has performed par excellence in the last season for his current club AS Monaco in the French Ligue 1 as well as in the Champions League, helping his team to lift the domestic title for the first time in 17 years.

A potential target for current European champions Real Madrid as well, Mbappe has a huge price tag of £130 million on his head, which literally has made the deal slip out of the hands of the Premier League club, and they are now looking for alternatives to fill in for the French youngster in the next season.

Anthony Martial, the striker that has been playing for arch rivals Manchester United for the last two seasons and has made a name for himself in the Premier League as one of the better finishers, has reportedly been approached by the Gunners to be a part of their team for the new season.

However, there might be some glitches arising regarding the transfer due to the tense relationship between the managers of the two clubs, Jose Mourinho and Arsene Wenger.

The French striker is valued at £40 million by the Red Devils and might be sold before the start of the next season, given that he has been out of favour under the coaching of Mourinho and has been used in bits and pieces only, throughout the last season.

Arsenal, on the other hand, are well known for their nurturing of young talents and turning them into good players over the years. So, it might be beneficial for the ex-Monaco star to join the North London club in the next season.

In case the deal is done, Martial might have the opportunity to be paired up front with his compatriot Alexandre Lacazette, who is presumed to be closing in on a move to the North London club as well in the summer.
