The young striker has expressed his desire to stay in Manchester.

Martial believes he can break into Jose Mourinho’s top squad and return to the form he was in during his debut season.

And Man United are reluctant to sell.

But if they decide on a loan move, the 21-year-old may feel he would be better suited at a club with more European football next season.

Interest from Arsenal and Inter Milan have also been reported.

United are heavily targeting Inter’s Ivan Perisic but negotiations halted after Inter demanded Martial be part of any deal.

Mourinho wants to keep Martial despite the pair not clicking in his first season as boss.

Martial struggled for playing time last season losing his place as a regular starter and scoring just nine goals after netting 17 in his debut season.
