Premier League club Manchester United are reportedly prepared to sell star striker Anthony Martial for around £50million, same amount they used in signing the Frenchman.

Martial has been heavily linked with a move to Italian Serie A side Inter Milan as a possible replacement for striker Romelu Lukaku who is billed to join Chelsea.

Lukaku is on the verge of moving to the Stamford Bridge and once the deal sails through, Inter will activate their bid for Martial immediately.

The Italian giants had tried to sign the Man Utd forward about two seasons ago and even poached to get him on loan, even though they wanted a permanent deal.

SunSport are reporting that a good relationship exists between Inter and Man Utd; recall that they earlier did business over Ashley Young and Alexis Sanchez.

Martial is currently on a £200,000-a-week deal with United and there are still over three years on his existing contract – plus a 12-month option - and is still only 25.

However, his place in the Red Devils’ starting line-up is far from guaranteed even before the knee ligament injury which ended last season in March.

Edinson Cavani is the undisputed goalscoring top dog, with Mason Greenwood, Marcus Rashford and new buy Jadon Sancho all ahead of him.

Premier League rivals Tottenham and Everton have both sniffed around, without following up initial interest, leaving the way clear for Inter.

Manchester City announce Grealish signing

Legit.ng earlier reported that Manchester City have announced the signing of England midfielder Jack Grealish on a six-year deal valued at around £100 million from Aston Villa.

The new move made the 25-year-old midfielder ranks top on the list of top 10 most expensive Premier League signings of all time, beating Paul Pogba's £93.25million transfer from Juventus to Manchester United in 2016.

Grealish was one of the outstanding performers at the European Championship this summer but failed to win the coveted prize at the end of the tourney - losing to Italy on penalties.
