This is Manchester United stance on Anthony Martial future in transfer window

Manchester United have no intention of selling Anthony Martial this summer.

According to reports in England, Martial remains in manager Jose Mourinho's plans next season and the 22-year-old has not requested to leave the club.

Mourinho has told the United hierarchy to only sanction the sale of players if they demand a transfer.

Martial's future has generated intense speculation in recent months and United were prepared to move for Fulham's 18-year-old left winger Ryan Sessegnon had the Cottagers not won their Play-off final against Aston Villa on Saturday.

Sessegnon, who scored 16 goals last season, is now expected to stay with Fulham for at least one more year.

United have three left wingers to choose from in Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Alexis Sanchez and have turned their attention to the right-hand side.

Chelsea winger Willian and Real Madrid's Gareth Bale are long-term targets the club have attempted to sign in recent years under Mourinho.

Willian's representatives held informal talks with United earlier this month but Bale's suggestion he could leave Real in the summer has alerted United, who have made at least three attempts to sign the Welshman over the last 11 years.

Martial's form plummeted following Sanchez's January arrival and the Frenchman has not scored since United's final match without the Chilean at Burnley on January 20.

Martial was omitted from France's 23-man World Cup squad and placed on the standby list.

His exclusion will leave Martial free to participate in a full pre-season with United, who travel to the United States on July 15 for a five-game tour.

Sanchez will also be included in the United traveling party after Chile failed to qualify for the World Cup.
