Newcastle ‘are ready to pay Man United £ 6million to sign Anthony Martial on loan with cash-rich magpies also keen on Inter Milan’s Eden Dzeko’ as they seek to find the power to january fire to avoid the fall
- Manchester United star Anthony Martial has become a target for Newcastle
- Martial, 26, has only made 10 United appearances this season
- Saudi-backed Toon set to sign him on loan in January window
- They would believe most targets won’t join them on loan until next month
Newcastle are ready to shell out £ 6million to sign Manchester United-excluded Anthony Martial on loan in January, according to reports.
The Magpies are gearing up for their first Saudi-owned transfer window after their £ 300million buyout in October.
Given that the Saudi Public Investment Fund, the club’s majority shareholder, is worth around £ 320bn, they will have money to spend like never before when the winter market opens next month. .

And The sun claim that the forgotten United star Martial is at the top of their wishlist before the January window.
Newcastle are believed to be ready to pay £ 6million to sign the French striker, who has only played 10 times for United this season, on loan until the end of the season.
While they undoubtedly have money to spend, Toon officials have accepted that they’re unlikely to attract world-class names to the club on a permanent basis amid their relegation battle – Eddie Howe’s men still in the dreaded drop zone approaching halfway.
The new owners of the Magpies prepare for their first transfer window at the helm
Martial is desperate to leave Old Trafford in January after falling out of favor this season, and Juventus are said to be in circles as well.
However, Newcastle are confident they will beat Juve on signing by offering United nearly £ 1million a month to loan him out.
They will also need to commit to a permanent transfer if they avoid relegation, with United looking to recoup the £ 36million they spent on him in 2015.
And Martial, who has been frozen at United this season, is at the top of their wishlist
Inter Milan striker Edin Dzeko is another target for Newcastle in January
Martial, who has only started two games for United in 2021/22, has two more years on his current contract with the Red Devils with the option of an additional 12 months included.
Still, he’s not the only big name on Newcastle’s radar, as Edin Dzeko would also be a prime target for the Saudi-backed outfit next month.
Dzeko, who has scored 11 goals for Inter Milan this season, only sealed Rome’s free passage to San Siro this summer.
