Martial scored twice for United in midweek

Anthony Martial has emerged as a £60million target for Spanish giants Barcelona and Real Madrid.

According to the Sun, both sides are ready to hand United back their initial £36million outlay plus profit, for the 20-year-old, next summer.

Martial’s form has been indifferent so far this season for United, despite his EFL Cup double against West Ham.

Barcelona are long-time admirers, having watched him at Monaco.

Now Los Blancos are said to be ready to move also – provided they can offload Colombian playmaker James Rodriguez.
