Martial to leave Manchester United?

Manchester United are likely to consider the sale of Anthony Martial when the transfer window reopens in January.

The Frenchman has had a tough year after a knee ligament injury, and he is no longer a regular starter for the club.

According to The Mirror, the arrival of Cristiano Ronaldo could have a drastic effect on the playing time of Martial.

Martial has played regularly upfront over the past few years, but his chances of doing so are pretty slim at the moment.

Ronaldo is expected to lead the line while there is quality back-up in the form of Edinson Cavani and Mason Greenwood.

The Frenchman also faces stiff competition in the wide attacking department with heavy competition for a starting spot.

Paul Pogba, Jadon Sancho, Greenwood, Jesse Lingard and Marcus Rashford could be competing for the two wide positions.

Martial declined a loan move to Lyon on deadline day, but reports claim that United may now be open to permanent offers.
