- Anthony Martial failed to perform for the umpteenth time for the Red Devils in Sunday’s barren draw with San Jose Earthquakes
- The Portuguese manager is sick of the player and his agent pushing for a move away from Old Trafford
- Mourinho reportedly will not let the 22-year-old leave Old Trafford to another English club and will only sell at the right price
Manchester United Portuguese boss Jose Mourinho is willing to allow grumbling French forward Anthony Martial leave the Old Trafford outfit.
According to a UK Sun report, the Red Devils boss is tired of Martial and his agent’s persistent request for a switch away from the Premier League side.
And after watching the Frenchman fail to perform for the umpteenth time for Manchester United in Sunday’s barren draw with San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara Mourinho is set to offload the former Monaco forward.
The Red Devils are now plotting to move the 12 month clause on the Martial’s deal so he cannot quit on a free next summer.
That will mean that potential club in need of his services will have to cough out about £50million for the forward who joined Manchester United at a reported fee of £36m rising up to £58m plus appearances and honours in 2015.
During his stay at the Old Trafford, Martial’s has not risen that is why the club will be looking at £50m for the player.
On the other hand, Mourinho is unlikely to allow Manchester United sell the French forward to another English club and will not let the 22-year-old leave Old Trafford unless it is the right price or the right club, the report further suggested.
Euro top clubs that include Chelsea, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are reportedly linked with Martial but the Portuguese boss stressed in Santa Clara yesterday when the Frenchman’s case was put to him noted that everyone does not get their own way if they want a quick get out.
“I would like to be in Los Angeles now and I am in San Jose.
“You cannot do whatever you want in life, I would love to arrive in Los Angeles, to train in Los Angeles and play all my five matches in Los Angeles, and then don't travel, don't change hotel and then go back to Manchester.
“I would like to play against Leicester on Sunday but I have to play on Friday, so you don't get always in life what you want,” Mourinho was quoted as saying.
Interestingly, after the lackluster 0-0 score line against San Jose Earthquakes Martial was asked if he was staying put at Old Trafford but he just laughed it off in response.
Meanwhile, NAIJ.com previously had reported that Chelsea and Bayern Munich are plotting summer move for Manchester United forward Anthony Martial despite not playing at the just concluded FIFA World Cup in Russia.
According to a UK Sun report, Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is unwilling to offload the French forward, despite not playing him during the second half of last campaign.
The Frenchman has 12 months left on his present deal at Old Trafford and has been linked with a move away from the Old Trafford after been frustrated after the arrival of ex-Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez in January.
