Manchester United are willing to use Anthony Martial in a swap deal to sign Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski, according to a report in Germany.

The Sun, as quoted by the Daily Mirror, is reporting that Manchester United are interested in a transfer swoop to sign the Poland international.

The same article states that Bayern want to sign Martial to bolster their attack in the current transfer window but are unwilling to match Manchester United’s £70m asking price.

According to the same story, the Bundesliga champions could include want-away Lewandowski as part of the deal to sign Martial ahead if interest from Chelsea FC, Tottenham Hotspur and Borussia Dortmund.

Martial has reported back to pre-season training after the France international left their tour of the United States for the birth of his second child.

The former Lyon winger was a huge hit during his first season under Louis van Gaal after the winger arrived at Manchester United in a £36m deal from AS Monaco.

The France star, who was omitted from his country’s triumphant World Cup squad, appeared to have turned a corner when Martial scored in three successive games before Alexis Sanchez’s arrival at Old Trafford.

Martial didn’t score in the remaining months of the Premier League season after the Chile star usurped the French forward in Mourinho’s starting line up.
