Man Utd star Anthony Martial wanted in swap deal as Ed Woodward sets transfer price

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial is wanted by Serie A giants Inter Milan this summer with a possibility of a swap deal outlined. The Frenchman has become the first-choice striker at Old Trafford and was on target in the 2-2 draw with Southampton last night.

Inter Milan are expected to sell their top striker in Lautaro Martinez with Barcelona interested in his signature.

And Antonio Conte is eyeing Martial as a possible replacement for the Argentina international.

United will not sell cheap though with a fee of £63million wanted or a possible swap deal involving Inter defender Milan Skrniar, according to Calciomercato.

The Red Devils are said to have made their interest in the centre-back clear to the Italian outfit.

Inter know they will face a tough task in signing Martial though as he has a contract which runs until June 2024 and is happy at Old Trafford.

The Frenchman has netted 21 goals and provided eight assists in all competitions this season.

Martial impressed against Southampton last night but United were surprisingly held to a 2-2 draw in a blow to their chances of finishing in the top four.

Nemanja Matic has warned his team-mates they must bounce back and stay positive though.
