Fed up Jose Mourinho is ready to let whinging Anthony Martial leave Manchester United.
The club manager has grown sick of the player and agent pushing to get a move away from Old Trafford.
Now after his awful performance yesterday in the goalless draw with San Jose Earthquakes in Santa Clara he is ready to let the player go.
United are ready to spring the 12 month clause on the player’s contract so he cannot leave on a free next summer.
That will mean any potential suitors will have to pay at least £50million for the player who joined United at a fee of £36m rising to £58m on appearances and honours in the summer of 2015.
Having said that, it is not as if his stock has risen in his time at United, which is why the club will be looking at £50m for the player.

Mourinho will not let the player, 22, leave unless it is the right price or the right club.
It is unlikely United will sell to another English club.
Chelsea, Juventus and Borussia Dortmund are said to be interested in him but Mourinho made it clear in Santa Clara yesterday when the Martial situation was put to him that everyone does not get their own way if they want a quick get out.
Mourinho said: “I would like to be in Los Angeles now and I am in San Jose.

“You cannot do whatever you want in life, I would love to arrive in Los Angeles, to train in Los Angeles and play all my five matches in Los Angeles, and then don’t travel, don’t change hotel and then go back to Manchester.
“I would like to play against Leicester on Sunday but I have to play on Friday, so you don’t get always in life what you want.”
After the drab 0-0 against San Jose Earthquakes Martial was asked if he was staying at United and just laughed in response.
