Anthony Martial’s woes under Jose Mourinho could soon be over as Roma prepare to approach Manchester United about the possibility of a loan deal, reports the Mirror.
The French international scored just four league goals last season as Mourinho struggled to fit him into his new-look side.
The long-expected departure of Wayne Rooney has left the Red Devils with one less option in attacking midfield, and that could explain why United are reportedly holding out for a permanent offer. Romelu Lukaku will now operate as their main man up front, but a decision needs to be made on out-of-favour Martial.
Roma may return with a £30million bid, though that would counter-act their decision to balance the books with the sale of Mohamed Salah to Liverpool.
The 21-year-old is versatile and can play either on the wing or up front, so he could be a great replacement for Salah.
Roma finished second in Serie A last term behind perennial winners Juventus, but they will be hoping to go a step further this time around.
