However, his issues with the manager further deepened when he left the Red Devils preseason camp in the United States to welcome his second child earlier this month.

And he has been destined to be shipped out of the club on the recommendations of the manager, who seems to have excluded him from his program for the new season.

However, coach Gennaro Gattuso according to Italian news outlet TMW wants to sign the winger who is also wanted by Juventus, Borussia Dortmund, and Atletico Madrid.

Earlier in the month, reports from Martial's camp says he will prefer to join a club in England as he doesn't want to go outside of the EPL.

Legit.ng earlier reported that Anthony Martial was left on the bench in Manchester United's Premier League opener at Old Trafford, with the Red Devils forced into using other options.

The Red Devils kicked off their 2018-19 season with a 2-1 home win over Leicester City on Friday, August 10 with Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba scoring for the hosts while Jamie Vardy's late minute equaliser was a mere consolation for the visitors.

United gaffer Jose Mourinho claims he “needed six changes not three” in his side's season opener, with Anthony Martial seeing no game as other options had to take priority.

The 22-year-old attacker is among those to have been available for the Red Devils throughout the summer having missed the World Cup.
