Martial 'allowed' by Man United to look for a new club

Manchester United has allowed striker Anthony Martial to look for a new club according to reports from the UK.

The Frenchman has fallen below the pecking order at Old Trafford following the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo with the former Monaco man starting just once for the Red Devils in the Premier League so far this season.

Martial scored just four goals last season and according to Eurosport, United have given him the green light to look for a new club in January as he fights for his place in the French national team.

United are willing to listen to offers for the player with Inter Milan and Juventus said to be the clubs interested in the player.

According to the reports, Martial is understood to be open to the prospect of remaining in the Premier League, after it emerged that Everton and Spurs are teams who have enquired about his availability before.

United will demand a fee of around £40m for the 25-year-old, who has scored 78 goals in 263 appearances in all competitions since arriving from Monaco as a teenager in 2015.

However, the forward’s wages of around £250,000-a-week could prove problematic to attracting interest with the player still having three years left on his current deal.
