West Ham "dream" of signing Manchester United man

Report suggest this could be the key to a Payet swap deal

French website Le10Sport are reporting that West Ham are dreaming of signing Manchester United and France frontman Anthony Martial. I would ask, who isn't?

The article claims that we would insist in the former Monaco forward being included as part of any deal that would see Dimitri Payet going to Old Trafford.

The Manchester Evening News recently stated that Manchester United would be interested in signing Dimitri Payet for a cut price deal of £15m, a figure that The Times reported would activate his release clause if we were to get relegated this season. It should be noted however that the figure has been disputed on the club's official website by "The Insider" who claims there is no such clause.

I doubt Man United would let Martial leave, with the 21 year old scoring almost 1 in 3 despite playing on the wing regularly, and highly doubt he would be keen to join us. But hey, nothing wrong with dreaming.
