Manchester United attacker Anthony Martial could reportedly head through the exit door before the transfer deadline approaches next week.

The Frenchman has recently been criticised by Jose Mourinho after failing to report to pre-season duty following his partner's pregnancy, and he has since not been involved in the final friendly against Bayern Munich.

According to The Express, Mourinho is prepared to sanction the Frenchman's sale in the coming days with Chelsea's Willian highlighted as a probable replacement.

It is added that the Mancunian giants could be prepared to discuss a straight-swap deal with the Blues with Willian earmarked as the prime target who could solve their issues on the right wing.

United have recently received a boost in terms of their first-team with Marcus Rashford, Phil Jones, Romelu Lukaku and Jesse Lingard returning ahead of their season opener.

Paul Pogba, Ashley Young and Marouane Fellaini, however, are yet to return to report for United duty as they remain on an extended break following their World Cup exploits.
