Now the Portuguese manager wants to get rid of him and is willing to offer the Frenchman as bait to sign Chelsea's Willian.

Willian has been a long-term target of Mourinho and he is increasingly confident of securing his signature with Willian who is reportedly unhappy with life at Stamford Bridge.

The 29-year-old angered new manager Maurizio Sarri after delaying his return to the club after being given an extended holiday following Brazil’s World Cup campaign in Russia.

Willian claimed that his passport had expired and he had to renew it be returning to London.

Sarri said of the incident: "I want to speak to him. I am not happy about this situation but before I answer, I would like to speak to him.”

Both Willian and Martial are valued at around £75million but the United attacker's value could increase in the future as he is seven years younger than the Blues' winger.
