Manchester United may agree to let Anthony Martial leave for Atletico Madrid in exchange for a player swap.

Martial’s season at Manchester United has been difficult, as he has only made ten appearances for the club, the majority of which have been from the bench, as he is not considered a key member of the squad.

Atletico Madrid has long admired Anthony Martial, and Eurosport reports that if he is able to exit Manchester United in January as expected, they will jump at the chance to sign him.

According to Eurosport, Atletico Madrid will contact United to learn about Martial’s asking price. It is expected that during that discussion, United will try to persuade Atletico to consider swapping some of their players.

In terms of players who could be included in a swap deal, the Daily Star reports that Manchester United is interested in acquiring Marcos Llorente in a potential swap deal for Martial.

Manchester United has long admired Llorente, and multiple reports last summer linked the Spanish midfielder with a move to Old Trafford. Aside from Llorente, Yannick Carrasco and Kieran Trippier are two other players who could be used in Martial’s swap deal.

Ideally, any swap deal would benefit Manchester United, as Martial’s time at the club appeared to be coming to an end. Hopefully, he will rediscover himself elsewhere.
