Borussia Dortmund see Man Utd striker Martial as Haaland replacement

Borussia Dortmund are watching closely Anthony Martial's situation at Manchester United.

Sport1 says Martial is among the list of Borussia Dortmund targets to replace Erling Haaland if he is to leave the German club this summer - but the Manchester United striker is deemed too expensive at present.

Martial finds himself as United's third-choice striker with Edinson Cavani also ahead of him, while Marcus Rashford, Mason Greenwood and Jadon Sancho are preferred out wide.

Even Paul Pogba is now being used in the left-sided position by manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Martial has played just 190 minutes in six appearances for United so far this season.

Dortmund's scouting staff have been told to look for players between the ages of 19 and 24 who they can sign for a smaller fee, like Haaland.

But Martial is 25 and would command a substantial fee, given United paid Monaco £36m to make him the world's most expensive teenage footballer back in 2015.
