Serie A holders Juventus are reportedly favourites to acquire the services of Manchester United winger Anthony Martial during this summer's transfer window.

The France international has sparingly been used since Alexis Sanchez's arrival in January and this has spread speculation over his United future beyond the summer.

According to Tuttosport, Jose Mourinho has 'freed up' the Frenchman to hold discussions with interested clubs and there is a strong possibility that the winger will leave the club in the summer.

Aside from Juventus, Bayern Munich and Barcelona have also been credited with an interest in the United outcast but the Bianconeri are deemed favourites as they are prepared to assure the winger of regular gametime.

Martial has netted 11 goals and assisted a further 10 across all competitions this campaign. His current deal is due to expire at the end of next season but United have the option of a 12-month extension clause.
