Anthony Martial breaks silence on Arsenal transfer talk

Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has broken his silence on rumours linking him with a move to the Emirates stadium.

The 21-year-old has emerged as a transfer target for Arsene Wenger over the past couple of days as a deal for Lyon’s Alexandre Lacazette stalls.

Indeed, Arsenal seemed to have been helped by the news of Martial submitting a transfer request at Old Trafford.

A report suggested that the France international was ready to ask Jose Mourinho for the greenlight to his departure.

However, Martial has taken to Twitter to post ‘The rumours are false’ in French in response to what is being speculated.

The striker’s future in Manchester has been put into doubt in recent weeks due to United’s expected signing of Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata.
