And, having missed out on Kylian Mbappe, it appears he is ready to turn to another of his compatriots.

The Mirror report Zidane wants the Manchester United ace, who is starting to show glimpses of his potential this season.

It is understood he believes Martial, 21, can lead the Los Blancos front line in the future.

United would be loathe to let him go with so much raw potential.

Martial has all the attributes to be a footballing superstar and Jose Mourinho appears to be finally getting the best out of him — even if it is in intermittent spells.

Last season, the former Monaco ace was in-and-out of the team, and he even started this campaign on the bench.

Martial has seven goals already this season, but often shared attacking duties with Marcus Rashford, before Mourinho opted to deploy them both in recent matches.

Consistency is still a major issue for the Frenchman, but he is a big fan favourite at United.

He even regain his place in the latest France squad, enjoying a sublime performance during the 2-2 draw with Germany.
