Serie A holders Juventus have reportedly opened up discussions with the representative of Manchester United forward Anthony Martial.

The France international has been a good success during his two-and-a-half year spell with the Red Devils, contributing 36 goals in all competitions.

Despite this, his future has come into question in recent months with Jose Mourinho opting to bench him more often following Alexis Sanchez's winter arrival.

According to Premium Sport, Martial's agent met with Juventus vice-chaiman Pavel Nedved earlier in the month to discuss the possibility over a summer switch to Turin.

Martial's current contract with United lasts until the summer of 2019, but the club effectively have another 12 months to prolong his stay via an extension clause in his contract.

The Frenchman was only a substitute during the 2-1 Champions League defeat to Sevilla on Tuesday night, but he is a likely contender to return to the starting lineup versus Brighton for the FA Cup quarter-final tomorrow.
