Barcelona is in desperate need of a winger as new statements from Ousmane Dembele‘s agent have pushed the player onto the verge of an exit. The former Borussia Dortmund superstar came into the club for a huge fee of 100 million euros however, he was never able to reproduce what was expected of him. He was supposed to be the next Neymar but instead, he turned out to be an injury-prone player who had a big attitude problem. There were already talks about his training etiquettes and now it seems as if he is not ready to lower his wages in order to support the club’s financial position.

In such a case, Barca will need to look for new wingers and a new one just came out on the market. Anthony Martial, one of Manchester United‘s most underappreciated players might be on his way to a new club. The striker who can play as a winger as well has been dropped from the squad due to a falling out with the manager. According to the Red Devil’s manager, the player does not want to be in the squad however, the player himself is adamant that he never said that and he never disrespected the club.

Either way, he is on his way to becoming a free agent at the end of the season, and the way things are going for him in his current club, it will not be surprising to see him leave. The situation is quite tense at the moment and the club itself is quite fragmented. Martial, who is 26 years old, is yet to make a proper name for himself in the club and although he has some amazing seasons, he also flops in a lot of seasons and has remained inconsistent. This is not entirely his fault as the club has not been playing very good football in recent years and the French player could thrive in a new system. Right now he is just another option for Barca however, this is one option they should look over thoroughly as he can have a huge impact on the team next season.
