Man Utd owe Monaco massive sell-on fee if Martial sold

Manchester United will not consider offers for Anthony Martial in January.

The Sun says United are flat-out refusing to sell outcast Anthony Martial because they would owe 50 per cent of the profits to Monaco.

Old Trafford chief Jose Mourinho has played the Frenchman for just 60 minutes in all competitions this season.

Chelsea, Tottenham and Inter Milan are keeping a watchful eye on the situation regarding Martial, whose sole appearance this season came in the defeat to Brighton.

But despite the ace clearly not being part of his manager's plans, Ed Woodward and the United money men want to keep him at the club.

The 18-cap France international, 22, has cost £44.5million so far with further clauses yet to be activated that could push the fee as high as £57.6m.

Monaco are due half of any profit meaning United would have to flog Martial - whose contract can be extended up until June 2020 - for upwards of £100m to make just £30m on the goalscorer.
