United given permission to speak to striker target

Tom Victor

Manchester United’s wait for a striker could be over, with the French FA giving Anthony Martial permission to speak to the Premier League club.

Martial, 19, had linked up with Les Bleus after playing for Monaco in their defeat to Paris Saint-Germain.

The forward, who top-scored for Monaco last season, has been linked with a £36m move to Old Trafford.

With Javier Hernandez moving to Bayer Leverkusen, United are most certainly in the market for a new frontman, but is a teenager with no Premier League experience really the answer?
