Man Utd transfer news: Anthony Martial will be sold by Jose Mourinho on one condition
Martial’s agent, Philippe Lamboley, gave an interview on French radio station RMC confirming his client wants to leave Manchester United.
Under Mourinho, Martial struggled to cement a starting spot last season and he looked likely to leave in January when Alexis Sanchez joined from Arsenal.
Tottenham have been keeping tabs on the 22-year-old, however it is not clear whether United would be willing to sell to a direct rival.
Juventus are also tracking Martial, who wasn’t included in France’s World Cup squad.
And according to the Daily Telegraph, Mourinho will only let Martial leave if he can bring in a ‘high calibre replacement’.
The report suggests that the potential sale of Martial would irk some at the club.
Chelsea star Willian and Real Madrid winger Gareth Bale have been identified as potential targets and could fill the void left behind by Martial if either of them joined.
Former United star Andrei Kanchelskis has conceded that United lack a good winger.
He said: “I think after [Sir Alex] Ferguson’s departure, it’s hard for any coach to work there.
“After so many victories, the fans got used to seeing their team only in the first place. And then, I think it lacks good wingers, as there could be many in the 90s.
“Those who raise the level of a team. At that time, the use of wingers was very important, now a little less.
“In European football, there are few clubs that attach importance to the flanks.”
