PSG eye Anthony Martial as 'potential replacement for Kylian Mbappe'
Martial has expressed his desire to leave Old Trafford
French clubs Paris Saint-Germain and Lyon are reportedly interested in Manchester United forward Anthony Martial after the Frenchman stated that he wants to leave Old Trafford.
Earlier this week, the 26-year-old's agent claimed that the frontman is keen to leave United in January in search of regular football.
He is thought to be unhappy with the amount of playing time he has received and does not expect the situation to change with interim manager Ralf Rangnick.
The French international also endured a difficult season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer last campaign, managing seven goals in 35 appearances. Most of his nine appearances this season have come as a substitute and he has only scored once.
Now, French outlet RMC Sport are claiming that Lyon are interested in signing Martial on loan next month, whereas PSG have reportedly identified him as a potential replacement for Kylian Mbappe, who is in the last few months of his contract at the Parc des Princes.

Martial has made just two starts in the Premier League this season and has played just 67 minutes in the Red Devils' Champions League campaign, starting just once in the competition.
His agent Philippe Lamboley told Sky Sports News : "Anthony wishes to leave the club in January.
"He just needs to play.
"He doesn't want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.'
Martial joined United as a teenager from Monaco in 2015. Having signed a new deal in 2019, he has three years left to run on his current contract at Old Trafford, which also has the option for an additional year.
