Anthony Martial is reportedly ready to join Juventus this month as he looks to force a move away from Manchester United.
The attacker has struggled to rediscover his form in recent years and has fallen down the pecking order as a result.
There was a twist in his transfer saga in the last week as he became embroiled in controversy in light of the draw with Aston Villa.
Interim manager Ralf Rangnick explained that the Frenchman had turned down the chance to travel to the West Midlands.
But the 26-year-old fired back on Instagram emphasising he would never refuse to play for the Reds.
Sevilla have previously registered an interest but pulled out of the running with United only permitting a move should his wages be fully paid for by the temporary club.
Rudy Galetti has tweeted suggesting that Massimiliano Allegri’s side are inching closer to signing him on a temporary deal until the end of the season.
Federico Chiesa will be out for an extended period after suffering a long-term injury leaving the Old Lady light in the attacking department as they look to make the ground up in the race for the Scudetto.
However, their demands fall short of the requirements to see him arrive in Turin, Galetti says that Juventus have asked the Reds to pay part of Martial’s salary.
