Real Madrid consider £80m swoop for Anthony Martial

Real Madrid have reportedly stepped up their interest in signing Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial, according to The Sun.

The Spanish champions have made a poor start to their La Liga title defence, falling 10 points behind the league rivals Barcelona.

Martial, 21, meanwhile, has been consistent in his second campaign under Jose Mourinho, scored seven goals and registered six assists in 19 appearances in all competitions.
