Manchester United Set For £65m Bid For Leicester City And England Defender

Anthony Martial has been told he can leave Manchester United - but only for the right club and the right price.

Manchester United boss, Jose Mourinho, is reportedly eager to sign one of the two Real Madrid players, Toni Kroos and Raphael Varane in this summer's transfer window.

The Mirror says Martial grew "disillusioned" last season because of his lack of game time, and that put Spurs and Juventus on alert, but apparently United "have no intention of offloading him" and the club will trigger the extension clause and reassure the youngster that he is still very much part of their plans for the future.

However after more links to Harry Maguire came about odds have fallen drastically from 10/1 to just 11/10 in a matter of days according to Betway.

United are expected to make a rival offer for the 29-year-old but "the lure of Barcelona is strong".

Mourinho, the United manager, is thought to be happy with his options at full back and wants to sign Maguire, the centre back, who is valued at more than £50 million after his impressive performances with England at the World Cup this summer.

Leicester will improve Maguire's wages to around £75,000 in a bid to tie him down for another season but the Foxes are wary he could depart.

Dalot, here playing against Liverpool, is one of only three signings so far.

Right now Mourinho has Phil Jones, Chris Smalling, Eric Bailly, Victor Lindelof and Marcos Rojo at his disposal so it makes sense he'd have to sell to buy. Some speculation has suggested United might also look at Bayern Munich's Jerome Boateng, who is thought to be open to leaving the German champions ahead of the new season.
