Manchester United striker Anthony Martial is on the radar of two Saudi Arabian clubs ahead of the winter transfer window.

The Frenchman had a injury-plagued 2022/23 season with the Red Devils. He made 14 goal contributions but missed 50 per cent of the games with injuries.

This forced the club to sign a new striker in Rasmus Hojlund and it is claimed that they could offload Martial at the start of 2024.

Martial's current deal expires at the end of the campaign. United have the option to extend for another year but don't wish to do so.

As per Ekrem Konur, two clubs from the Saudi Pro League are planning to make bids in the region of €10-15m to sign the Frenchman.

United are likely to sanction his departure and it remains to be seen whether the 27-year-old will accept the proposal from the Middle East.

Martial is currently one of the highest earners at United at £250,000-a-week and he could easily double his wages with a move to Saudi.
