That is because the Portuguese is said to not want to keep an "unhappy" player at the club will "urge" Old Trafford officials to sell.

"Also, he's defensively poor - especially in a (Jose) Mourinho team where he likes his wide players to do a job".

Speaking about Sanchez's absence at a press conference on Wednesday, United boss Jose Mourinho said: "It's really bad and he's really sad".

Man United fans will certainly be watching Martial's situation closely this season - it could be make-or-break for him.

During the first half of last season in the English Premier League, Mourinho divided duties on the left side of his attack between Martial and Marcus Rashford.

"Anthony has the choice, I can not say anything on the subject at the moment but you think that from the moment a player like Anthony is on the market a lot of clubs are interested".

Meanwhile, David de Gea, Nemanja Matic and new Brazilian signing Fred are expected to take part in training over the next few days.

"We knew it was going to be hard because they have been training for more weeks than us, so I think they are in a better condition", Mata said.

However, it is still understandable since they are missing a host of first-team players.

"Today is good for Alexis", Mourinho said. Match fitness is a different thing but we knew he could be good and it was a good physical effort for him - a bit more than an hour, which was good.

Martial's agent Philippe Lamboley has been vocal on the France star's future, revealing the ex-Monaco attacker is looking to move. I think we shouldn't think that any other club in the Premier League has better players because at least we have as good as the opponents.
