Manchester United are ready to let go of the Frenchman in favor of another star player.
According to reports, Manchester United is prepared to offload Anthony Martial during the forthcoming transfer window in order to raise money and make room on the squad for a star player signing for the upcoming season.
Anthony Martial joined Manchester United as a youngster in 2015 for a fee of £58 million, with big things in store for the Frenchman. However, inconsistency and injuries have hampered his time at Manchester United, and it it believed that Erik ten Hag has grown frustrated with his lack of availability.
Anthony Martial, who has just one year left on his contract, will reportedly be sold by United this summer, according to The Sun.
The 27-year-old has made just 10 Premier League starts thus far, with four different injuries being the primary cause of his absences.

Although it is expected that Manchester United would want to increase that amount, Martial is currently valued at €15 million on Transfermarkt. A bigger sum for transfers would enable them to replace him with another star player.
Indeed, Neymar Jr. from Paris Saint-Germain is apparently a target for the Red Devils.
L’Equipe reports that Manchester United is in negotiations to sign the Brazilian permanently or on a short-term loan while also contributing to his big salary.
Jadon Sancho will undoubtedly be delighted to hear that Neymar’s Brazilian teammate Casemiro has spoken with him about a potential move to Old Trafford.
Jason Sancho, then 14 years old, tweeted: “My idol Neymar” after Neymar inspired Barcelona to a 6-1 victory over PSG at Camp Nou in the 2015 Champions League, overturning a 4-0 first-leg deficit.
If the 31-year-old moves to England, Sancho, who is now 23 years old, will likely face off against Neymar for a spot in Manchester United’s starting lineup.
Neymar’s exit would be welcomed by PSG supporters as well, who earlier in the month protested his presence at the club by showing up at his home.
