Man Utd will not allow Martial to leave this summer

Manchester United have no intention of selling forward Anthony Martial during this summer’s transfer window.

The 25-year-old had been linked with a move to Inter Milan but is believed to be part of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s plans for the new season.

Martial made 48 appearances for United last season, scoring 23 goals as they finished second in the Premier League and reached the Europa League final.

Saturday’s 4-0 friendly win against Everton marked the France international’s first minutes since sustaining a knee injury in March while on international duty with France.

United bolstered their attacking options with the £73m signing of England international Jadon Sancho from Borussia Dortmund.

However, with Marcus Rashford facing up to 12 weeks out following shoulder surgery and Jesse Lingard also sidelined after testing positive for Covid-19, Solskjaer will not allow Martial to leave this summer.

Martial swapped Monaco for Manchester in 2015 and has scored 78 goals in 258 appearances for United, with his current deal running until 2024, with the option of a further year.

Manchester United begin their 2021/22 Premier League season at home to Leeds on Saturday.
