Manchester United reportedly want Juventus to pay circa €12m to have Anthony Martial on loan for five months, conditions the Bianconeri find absolutely unacceptable.
Juve general manager Maurizio Arrivabene said yesterday ahead of their 4-1 Coppa Italia win over Udinese that they were interested in Martial, but “not at those figures.”
It had already been suggested that Manchester United wanted Juve to pay Martial’s full salary for the five months, plus a fee for the loan.
According to Sport Mediaset, the precise cost of the loan fee requested was €6m, which is simply extraordinary for a player who will be at the club for barely five months.
That is on top of the salary, which for five months would be at least €6m, meaning that Martial would cost €12m to spent just a few months in Turin.
Newcastle United are also known to be interested in the Martial loan, but they too have baulked at these conditions set by the Old Trafford side.
