Why selling Martial would be a mistake for the club

Anthony Martial leaves Manchester United tour for birth of second child

Reports on Thursday suggested that Man United have approached Leicester City about potentially signing defender Harry Maguire, though Leicester will, understandably, do everything in their power to hold on to one of their star assets.

Manchester United's tour of the United States has hit more problems after Antonio Valencia was sent home with an injury while confusion reigns over whether Anthony Martial received permission to attend the birth of his son, sources have told ESPN FC.

Harry Maguire is confident of securing a £65m move to Manchester United. He's shown that in this World Cup I think that he can play. "I think that when Man United, who are the most powerful club, can not come to an agreement after eight months it is because they really don't want to make him a key player".

Manchester United continues their pre-season on Wednesday when they host AC Milan in Pasadena, following draws with Club America and San Jose Earthquakes so far.

Do you think it is time for United to sell Martial?

Those are not the most supportive words the Man Utd manager could have used in this situation.

Arsenal manager respects Ozil's Germany choice, says Gunners are his 'home'
The DFB on Monday rejected Ozil's claims of racism and reiterated their belief that the player should have explained his motive behind the meeting, as team-mate Ilkay Gundogan did.

Paul Scholes says World Cup victor Paul Pogba needs to "use his brain more" before the Manchester United midfielder can be considered a top footballer.

It is understood Martial has told Mourinho he wants to leave the club, with Chelsea, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund keen to sign the 22-year-old, who joined United three years ago.

A disagreement at the core, between the manager and CEO - in a club where responsibilities are shared; lines are murky and where there is a lack of a concrete structure across various different levels of decision making, is quite simply a recipe for disaster. That means France midfielder Paul Pogba and Belgium striker Romelu Lukaku will be among the 11 senior players who are not with United in Los Angeles.

"Every year when Manchester United doesn't win something it is a disaster". I went to Vietnam and Thailand, I'm feeling good and I can hopefully get a full pre-season, which I've not had in many years.

"Knowing Anthony the way I know him I think if you can get the best out of him, he's up there ability-wise with the best in the league".
