Barcelona eye move for Manchester United star Anthony Martial

- Frenchman Anthony Martial could be on his way to Barcelona at the end of the season

- Barcelona are ready to tempt Manchester United chiefs with massive sum of £60 million

- Martial is said to be currently furious at Old Trafford due to lack of active playing time

Spanish giants Barcelona are reportedly considering the signing of Manchester United striker Anthony Martial and they are ready to tempt the Red Devils with £60 million this summer.

Anthony Martial's contract at Old Trafford will expire in the summer of 2019 but there are reports that the Frenchman is currently frustrated at Manchester United.

Lack of active playing time this term under Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho is said to be the major rationale that Martial is said to be furious with.

He is also said to be unhappy that he was asked to operate on the right wing rather than his preferred left side to accommodate Sanchez.

Since Alexis Sanchez joined the club in January, Martial has not scored and has started only four games including defeats at Tottenham and Newcastle and he was then substituted in the 64th minute against Chelsea.

Last summer, Anthony Martial was said to be on the verge of joining Barcelona, but the Catalan giants instead signed Dembele, but they are now going back for him at the end of the season according to Dailymail.

Frenchman Anthony Martial, 22, began his professional career at Lyon, then transferred to AS Monaco in 2013 for a fee of €6 million.

He was a member of Monaco's squad for two seasons, and signed for Manchester United in 2015 for an initial fee of £36 million which could potentially rise to £57.6 million.

Martial made his debut at Old Trafford on 12 September, 2015 as a 65th-minute substitute for Juan Mata and scored the final goal of a 3–1 win over rivals Liverpool.
