Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho is ready to play Anthony Martial as a central striker next season - if he chooses to stay.

The Daily Mail says he believes that Martial and teammate Marcus Rashford have not developed as well as they should have with the wide roles they have been afforded this season.

Martial is proud to be part of a club like United, but is also desperate to play.

Mourinho has always maintained that if a player insists on leaving he will not stand in his way but United's hierarchy are reluctant to let a talent such as Martial depart, particularly to Premier League rivals, knowing it has the potential to backfire on them in future.
