Italian giants Juventus have renewed their interest in Manchester United star man Anthony Martial, according to Tuttosport.
Anthony Martial joined Manchester United on the deadline day of the 2015 summer transfer window. He signed for the Red Devils on a four-year deal, and for a transfer fee of £36 million, potentially rising to £58 million, thereby becoming the most expensive teenage footballer in the process.
The 20-year-old hit the ground running at the Old Trafford club on his debut itself, by scoring an impressive goal against United’s arch-rivals Liverpool. He has since been an important part of the United squad, and bagged 15 goals and 11 assists for the Reds last season.

The Frenchman is one of the brightest talents in world football at the moment, and could very well become one of the world’s bests in the coming years. But despite his high potential, the forward has not been on the radar of any clubs, as nobody expects Manchester United to give up their prized jewel under any circumstances.
However, that might be changing now, as per Italian outlet Tuttosport. Their latest report suggests that Juventus are interested in making a surprise move for Anthony Martial.
The reigning Serie A Champions were interested in the France international back in 2015 as well, but they failed to lure him to Turin, and the youngster was eventually snapped up by United. But Juve are determined this time around, and have already begun preparations for the potential transfer.
In fact, Juventus are all set to send a scout to watch Martial feature for France in the upcoming World Cup qualifiers against Bulgaria and the Netherlands.
But their efforts might be for naught, as the Manchester United man has not been in the best of form, and may thus end up spending most of the time on the bench.
