Newcastle United Makes Contact With Manchester United, Wants to Sign Their Top Striker This January

Newcastle United is currently the richest club in the world. The Magpie's new owners are richer than Paris Saint Germain and Manchester City all combined. This means that they can now afford any player on the planet without struggling financially.

Newcastle United is set to sign new players in the upcoming January transfer window after the £300m takeovers by the Saudi Arabia Public Investment Group. Also, Steve Bruce is set to be replaced and a new manager who is capable of bringing the club back to its winning ways be appointed.

Among the players that the rejuvenated Newcastle is aiming includes Manchester United forward Anthony Martial. According to Manchester United Evening News, Newcastle has made contact about the possibility of signing the French forward.

The Frenchman has endured a sad season at Manchester United struggling to reignite his top form. He has also fallen down the pecking order after the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo and Edison Cavani starting on the bench majority of his time.

With the return of Marcus Rashford, Martial is set to fall further the pecking order and this could see him set his eyes leaving for Newcastle United.

Anthony Martial scored his first goal of the season last weekend against Everton. He joined in a big-money transfer from Monaco back in 2015 after the appointment of Luis Van Gaal. He has scored more than 50 goals for the Red Devils.

All attention will now focus on Newcastle United to see if the deal could happen, especially after Manchester United told his representative that they can start looking for a new club for Martial.
