Anthony Martial could be on his way out of Old Trafford this summer as Mourinho seems set to cash-in on the Frenchman.

According to the Sun, the Portuguese manager has reportedly set a £100m-plus- summer-clear-out price tag on the player.

Having moved to Old Trafford from Monaco in 2015, the 22-year-old hasn’t been too impressive for the Red Devils- mostly this season where he only managed six starts.

In the 2015-16 season, the player emerged as the club’s top goalscorer but last season hasn’t been the same as his performance keeps dropping regularly.

However, despite his deep form, Chelsea have shown huge interest in luring the Frenchman to Stamford Bridge before the 2018-19 season begins in August.

The Blues hierarchy believes they stand to gain from Martial’s experience as United player.

The West London Club were unable to defend their title as they failed to prevent Manchester City from winning the League with some matches left to play. Abramovich is willing to lay claim for the title next season, he, therefore, wants to sign the striker so as to improve his striking force.

In other United news, Marcus Rashford is increasingly facing the prospect of leaving Old Trafford this summer after another awful display for the Red Devils against Chelsea last Saturday.

Real Madrid and Arsenal were recently linked with the youngster’s signature.
