Anthony Martial warning

Manchester United are trying to quash Tottenham and Chelsea’s hopes of trying to sign Anthony Martial, according to reports.

Martial’s future at Manchester United has been the subject of mounting speculation, and the Frenchman struggling to nail down a regular starting spot under Jose Mourinho last term.

Express Sport understands Chelsea and Tottenham are both interested in the 22-year-old as they seek to bolster their respective attacks.

Recent reports have suggested that Mourinho would be reluctant to sell Martial to a direct rival.

And now according to the Sunday Mirror, United will demand £75million in order to sell Martial.

It is suggested that holding out for a massive fee will dissuade suitors.

Gareth Bale exclusive

Gareth Bale’s Real Madrid career has been given a life line because of one thing Julen Lopetegui can do that Zinedine Zidane couldn’t.

It has already emerged that Bale is now happy to stay and expects to be given a life line but Express Sport can reveal the reason why.

Bale feels more comfortable in his position because Lopetegui can speak English, whereas Zidane couldn’t.

Bale tried to learn Spanish when he first moved to the Bernabeu but has made little progress despite being there since 2013 and winning four European Cups.

Manchester United are ready to make their move if it is indicated Bale is available, but they are also tracking Willian and would be keen on Neymar if a deal was possible.

Milan Skriniar blow

Manchester United have been dealt a blow in their pursuit of Milan Skriniar, according to reports in Italy.

United are in the hunt for a centre-back this summer as Jose Mourinho looks for a partner for Eric Bailly in the heart of defence.

Tottenham ace Toby Alderweireld had emerged as the most likely candidate for the role but Daniel Levy is driving a hard bargain.

Manchester United seem to have turned their attention to Skriniar, who’s just enjoyed an impressive first season at Inter Milan.

However, the latest reports from Italy indicate Mourinho may have to go searching elsewhere as he seeks to bolster his defence.
