Despite nabbing forward Romelu Lukaku from Everton for £75m plus add-ons, Manchester United are still pursuing their target of Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata, with their attacker Antony Martial heading to Italian side Roma.
According to the Daily Star via The Daily Post, the reigning Europa League champions are not settling with their purchase of 24-year-old Lukaku, and want to ensure that they are challenging for a Premier League title next year, with Spaniard Morata still an option for manager Jose Mourinho.
The Mirror via The Daily Post also understand that Frenchman Martial could be sent out on loan to Serie A club Roma for a years’ time.
It has been a tough transfer window so far, with many clubs trying to get deals done early ahead of their pre-season tours. But with the inflated prices, deals have been hard to come, particularly for the bigger sides.
Both Mourinho and his rival Chelsea boss Antonio Conte have aired their frustrations concerning the crazy current market.
