West Ham are demanding Anthony Martial to let Issa Diop leave to Old Trafford.
Manchester United want West Ham’s Issa Diop, but the Red Devils need to sacrifice Anthony Martial – if any deal is to be done for the centre-half. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer wants to land a top defender and regards the French International as a perfect fit to steer them to the Champions League spot next season.
Additionally, Independent have reported that the Hammers are not showing an intention to sell their top defender until they are offered Anthony Martial in return. West Ham have already turned down a bid worth £40 million from the Red Devils – as they hold up for a sum of £60 million.
The hammers secured the signature of Issa Diop from Toulouse for a reported fee of £22 million last summer. The 22-year-old was up to scratch under Manuel Pellegrini, faring 33 times in the Premier League for the London club.
He will not a subordinate signing as he is ought to receive a call-up from his senior national team. The Toulouse product has stabilized the backline by conceding 55 goals – which accounts to one lesser than Manchester United have granted the opponents. With the superior environment at Old Trafford, the French International could come to succour the often-scrutinized defence.
Manchester United fans are on the outs with Anthony Martial. There have been unevenness in Martial’s form since his arrival at the club in 2015, but the Red Devils will be tenacious in keeping him at Old Trafford.
Despite that, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer sees sheer talent inside the Frenchman and desires to keep him at Old Trafford. The 23-year-old put pen to paper until 2024 with the club – making it pragmatic for West Ham to lure him away from the record Premier League Champions.

West Ham are conscious of Manchester United’s defensive fatalities – which makes them hold the upper hand in this chronicle. Anything lesser than £50 million will not satisfy the demands of West Ham.
