Galatasaray keen on signing 28-year-old who will leave Manchester United as free agent

Galatasaray will consider signing Anthony Martial on one occasion

According to an ESPN report, Galatasaray will consider bringing Anthony Martial to Turkey if the latter were to lower his wage demands.

The 28-year-old’s departure from Old Trafford was confirmed last month, bringing down curtains to a nine-year stint in England.

The France international’s expiring United contract fetched him £250,000 per week.

Apart from the Turkish Süper Lig club, Serie A side Inter Milan have also shown an interest in bringing the Frenchman to Italy for free.

Martial leaves United having scored 90 goals and provided 47 assists from 317 appearances across all competitions. He won one FA Cup (2015/16) at United as well as one League Cup (2016/17), Community Shield (2016), and Europa League (2016/17) each.

Martial should fancy a Turkey move if the Inter links fall through

The £36 million United paid for him played a huge rule in determining the perception around Martial during his time at Old Trafford.

While given the time he spent and the numbers he produced indicate he is not exactly a flop, he also did not live up to the expectations that were levied on him at a young age.

Even if he were to take a wage drop, it is unlikely Martial’s weekly salary would wall below six figures, and given his current predicament this is absolutely something he should keep in mind while figuring out his next move.
