FC Barcelona are reportedly considering making an offer for France international forward Anthony Martial, according to the Daily Mail.

The La Liga leaders, who sit 12 points clear of second-placed Atletico Madrid in the Spanish top-flight standings, have been linked with a £60m bid for the Manchester United star this summer.

The 22-year-old, who has 18 international caps for his country, has scored 11 goals and provided 10 assists in 41 appearances in all competitions for the Premier League side so far this season.

Martial, who arrived at Old Trafford back in September 2015 following his lucrative move from AS Monaco, in a deal worth up to £58m, has netted 36 times in 132 games overall for The Red Devils.

Manchester United’s Anthony Martial.

However, the Frenchman is understood to have stalled on talks to sign a new deal at The Theatre of Dreams, due to his falling down the pecking order under manager Jose Mourinho recently.

Martial is contracted at United until June 2019, though the club retain the option of a one-year extension.

Barcelona are reportedly keeping close tabs on the forward’s situation at United, and could swoop this summer for his signature if he wishes to leave The Red Devils.
