The Italian journalist added that United have ‘turned down’ approaches from Newcastle United and Tottenham Hotspur for Martial, but Spanish sides Barcelona and Seville, as well as Serie A team Juventus are ‘three options’ available to the forward.

Romano added, in order to secure the 26-year-old on loan, the three clubs in question would have to agree to covering all of his wages and pay a loan fee.

According to Calciomercato, Juventus are considering making a move for Martial this month after Federico Chiesa sustained a anterior cruciate ligament injury against Roma, ruling him out for the rest of the season.

The Italian outlet states that Martial could be seen as a replacement for Chiesa and with the Frenchman out of favour at Old Trafford.

Martial is highly versatile due to his ability to play as a striker and on either wing, and has only made 10 appearances in all competitions for the Red Devils this campaign, scoring once.

In recent season, the United fanbase have been split on their opinion of Martial due to his inconsistency for the club, but with his status in the team currently, it would make sense to loan him out during the winter window. Finding a club willing to pay for him is a completely different matter, however.
