Huge rumour about Chelsea trying to sign a Red Devils player

Published Add your comment

In the end Anthony Martial’s move to Manchester United this summer was perhaps the biggest deal that took place. In any case it was certainly the most shocking given the fee paid. However, it’s now said that Chelsea made an attempt at hijacking said transfer, as Jose Mourinho plotted a last minute bid himself. The Sunday Times claim that the Blues made an enquiry for the 19-year-old with a view to purchasing him next summer, but that by the time Roman Abramovich had decided he wanted to match United’s offer, it was already too late. Mourinho managed to lure Pedro out of Louis van Gaal’s grasp, but the Dutchman won the battle regarding Martial. In keeping with that subject other news today focuses on Remi Garde’s thoughts on the young striker. The ex-Lyon boss, who used to coach Martial, revealed how there were many things he had to improve on, including his physicality. But he did predict he would become a success in time.
