According to reports from the Express, Manchester United Forward, Anthony Martial has reportedly told friends he could be set for a departure from Old Trafford in the summer.
The 21- year- old has found it increasingly difficult being a regular mainstay in Mourinho’s starting Xi this campaign and has been linked with a £60m move, amid reported interest from Paris Saint Germain, Atletico Madrid and Juventus.
Sources at Manchester United though have refuted such claims and still insist the club is not looking to do a deal as Martial is highly rated, and is of vital importance to Mourinho’s rebuilding process at Old Trafford.
But transfer expert Duncan Castles, on the Transfer Window Podcast, says Martial hasn’t gotten the reassurance he seeks over a more prominent role and subsequently asked to leave, with talks over his exit well underway.
“Martial’s agent has been marketing him around Europe, and trying to get a club. “I’m told he hasn’t got a definite contract offer yet. “From what I understand, Martial is telling friends that he expects to be elsewhere when the summer window is complete.
“And I’m told Jose Mourinho would be open to selling him if he asks for a transfer. “It’s not the case that Martial has been put on the market, but they are ready to let him leave if he decides he wants to
go away.”... express.co.uk
