Los Blancos have been suffering from a disturbing spell so far this season, as they sit fourth in the league table, with their arch-rivals Atletico Madrid and Barcelona above them.
In what seem to be the hopes of getting themselves forward, Zinedine Zidane has been focusing on foreign forwards to reinforce the club in the winter window.
Real, although a household name for the trophies the accumulate, are facing a shortage of youth products to be employed in the offence.
With a majority of the skilled players available at his disposal getting too old for the counter-attacking fashion of the La Liga giants, it’s no wonder that the gaffer is craving for starlets whose services are reliable.
Ostensibly, the chief target of the Bernabeu outfit appears to be the United attacker, who has been showcasing noteworthy performances in the Premier League currently.
At just 21, the Frenchman is no longer a novice in his professional football career. The decorated forward enticed a great deal of attention with the resounding transfer back in 2015 for €80 million from AS Monaco.
Demonstrating his talents, Martial even earned boss Jose Mourinho’s trust, although he’s not yet a guaranteed starter.
Zidane, who is excited by the potential move, is ready to test Mourinho’s side with a €90m January bid. The influential gaffer believes landing the United forward would be the first step in realizing his goal of building a young, prominent squad for the future.
However, the very fact that he showcases a sensational form could turn against Real, as many top-tier clubs are interested in hauling the wide-man over to their respective sides.
Nonetheless, when it boils down to negotiating, Florentino Perez is the boss, aided by the massive financial resources.
Despite the prevailing contract pinning Martial down in Manchester for a couple more years, a move to Spain could be highly anticipated this summer, with Madrid being the primary destination.
