Man Utd boss Mourinho prepared to see Martial sold

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is prepared to see Anthony Martial sold this summer.

The Mirror says Martial has been told he can leave United – but only for the right club and the right price.

Jose Mourinho has reluctantly accepted Martial's desire to leave United this summer after three years, even though the club's hierarchy do not want to lose the £36million forward.

Mourinho knows it is impossible to keep Martial, given the 22-year-old's determination to leave this summer, and has impressed this upon United executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward.

Woodward is understood to want to keep Martial and will trigger the striker's one-year extension clause, to protect United's financial investment in him, if they do not receive the fee they want.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Bayern Munich are interested in Martial, but United are not prepared to let him go to a Premier League rival, which leaves a move abroad the likeliest prospect.
