Man Utd chairman Glazer blocks Solskjaer sale of 'new Pele' Martial

Manchester United winger Anthony Martial will not be sold because of co-chairman Joel Glazer.

Like his predecessor Jose Mourinho, current United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has questioned Martial's attitude and commitment.

Mourinho had tried to sell the Frenchman last summer, and Solskjaer has voiced the same opinion towards the end of this season.

However, The Mirror claims Glazer has thwarted their requests because he views the 23-year-old as the club's "Pele".

Therefore Martial's position at United is set to be safe for another season, especially after he penned a contract extension in January.
