Martial & Nastastic for Roma?

Roma are reportedly closing in on a deal for Schalke defender Matija Nastasic and have enquired about taking Manchester United’s Anthony Martial on loan.

According to Gazzetta dello Sport, Nastastic is “on the verge” of joining Roma for a fee in the region of €12m.

The Serbia international played for Fiorentina during the 2011-12 campaign, before heading to Manchester City in exchange for Stefan Savic.

The Giallorossi are also said to have asked United about the possibility of loaning Martial for next season.

The 21-year-old attacker became the world’s most expensive teenager when he signed for United in 2015 and scored 17 goals in his first campaign at Old Trafford.

However, he fell out of favour under Jose Mourinho last term, prompting speculation that he is seeking to rejuvenate himself elsewhere.
