But, according to Tuttosport, Juve may wait until next summer to sign Martial for free.Earlier this month, the Italian giants completed the free signing of Emre Can from Liverpool.Despite wanting him since last summer, Juve decided to wait and hold off from paying £35 million for the midfielder – instead signing him for free.Martial signed for Manchester United in 2015, for an initial fee of around £36 million.
