It’s been a difficult first season under Jose Mourinho for Anthony Martial.
After arriving from PSG in summer 2015, the £36million signing quickly established himself as one of Manchester United’s key players, finishing last term as their top scorer across all competitions and arguably the focal point of their attack.
But as we all know, Mourinho’s emphasis on resolute shape off the ball doesn’t sit well with every attacking player and perhaps as a consequence, the 21-year-old has been limited to just nine Premier League starts this term – finding himself used more in the cup competitions by the Portuguese.
That has lead to suggestions of a summer departure, with Mirror Football claiming that Martial feels he’s being ‘forced out’ of the club by Mourinho, after the Old Trafford gaffer questioned his side’s ‘winning mentality’.
Dont listen the papers it's wrong thanks Come on United ????

Martial has disputed the claims and there’s no doubt he’s an exciting talent. But if Mourinho doesn’t fancy him, it makes more sense for United to cash in than simply use him as a bench option while his value slowly decreases.
With that in mind, we have a simple question for United fans; should the Red Devils sell the Frenchman at the end of the campaign? Let us know by voting in the poll below…
