Portuguese winger Martins Gelson who plays for sporting Lisbon of Portugal has been linked to English giants Manchester united. Martins form has been impressive and has drawn the attention of Jose Mourinho and Real Madrid’s coach Zinedine Zidane.
Martins was in good form as his side clashed with Real Madrid in the Uefa champions league game drawing the attention of the Madrid boss who has made discreet enquiries about the 21 year old winger.
This urged Manchester’s coach Jose mourinho to step up his interest for the player but sporting head coach Jorge Jesus asked his board to renew the wingers contract thereby leading to an increase in his release clause from 55million euro to about 77million euro with the aim of chasing away both Manchester united and Real Madrid.
Manchester united have also been linked with Real Madrid’s Isco to replace out-of-form captain, Wayne Rooney. Rooney who is 30years old is six years older than Isco.
The England skipper was left out of the starting line-up that hammered Leicester city 4 – 1 last Saturday leading to speculations that his days at Manchester united are almost up.
Mourinho is eager to launch a sensational bid for Isco in January making it more evident that the coach no longer believes there is anything special about his skipper. Isco has been overlooked by his coach Zinedine Zidane and he is seeking to launch his career at another club preferably Manchester United.
