Anthony Martial Finally Breaks Silence Over His Proposed Arsenal Move - 4 years ago
Manchester United winger, Anthony Martial has dismissed reports suggesting that he is in talks to join Arsenal this summer. The 21-year-old has been tipped to make a move away from the Old Trafford during this transfer window after falling out of favour under Jose Mourinho last season. There have been reports that United are considering a move for a left winger this summer, with the likes of Ivan Perisic and Federico Bernardeschi both linked with a move to the Old Trafford. Arsenal are also on the lookout for a new face in the left wing as Alexis Sanchez continue to stall on renewing his contract at the Emirates. The Gunners have been tipped to make a £40million bid for Martial, who is clearly frustrated at his lack of chances at the Old Trafford. However, the French winger has come out to debunk his exit rumours with a message on social media, with a post which read: ‘The rumours are false,’ Anthony Martial arrived at Manchester United in 2015 for a record £36million deal from AS Monaco, going on to show his brilliance to become the club’s highest goalscorer in his debut season but has not been able to continue in such form since the arrival of Jose Mourinho who confined the forward to the bench for most parts of the season.
