Juventus are in advanced talks to sign Anthony Martial from Manchester United this summer, according to reports in France.

French outlet Euro United, as quoted by Calciomercato, is reporting that the 22-year-old striker remains a top target for the Serie A side this summer as they look to strengthen their squad.

Martial’s future at Manchester United has been something of a source of speculation recently due to his lack of playing time under Jose Mourinho last season.

Indeed, Martial has been strongly linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer, and Juventus appear to be the latest team interested in taking the France international away from Old Trafford.

The same story says that Juventus’ discussions over a deal to sign Martial are already at an advanced stage.

However, it is also claimed that he remains a second choice target for the Serie A side, behind Inter Milan’s Mauro Icardi.

Manchester United, meanwhile, are thought to be on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as they look to build a squad capable of winning the Premier League next season.

The Red Devils finished in second place and without a trophy in Mourinho’s second season in charge last term.
