Paris Saint-Germain look to Manchester United for Zlatan Ibrahimovic replacement

Yesterday, all the talk was about Zlatan Ibrahimovic. 

The Swedish striker's post on Instagram about his impending exit from Paris Saint-Germain set the internet alight, then the rumours that he could be on his way to Manchester United began.

That was all well and good, and Manchester United fans were certainly enjoying the speculation - that was until it was claimed that PSG want Anthony Martial as the enigmatic Swede's replacement.

L'Equipe are claiming this morning that the French club have made contact with the 20-year-old's representatives over a potential switch, although they concede any move would be nigh-on impossible. 

That's probably an understatement; Martial has been a shining light for Manchester United this season following his £36 million move from Monaco, and although that fee may eventually rise to £58 million, he will be worth every penny if he can maintain his current form.

The forward has scored 17 goals and provided eight assists this term, and bagged the goal that sent the Red Devils into the FA Cup final last month.

PSG of course have the money to buy any player in the world but Manchester United have no need to sell and will not let their best young player leave for any price.

The French club are said to be keen on a forward who can play out wide as well as in attack, and according to L'Equipe have also identified Neymar and Cristiano Ronaldo as potential targets.

Alexis Sanchez, Antoine Griezmann are also believed to be on their radar ahead of what could be a major summer of action in the French capital. 

How good can Anthony Martial be next season?
