Mourinho green light for Man Utd to sell Martial

Tuttosport (h/t Calciomecato.com) reported the Bianconeri could re-sign Morata, 25, for around €60 million (£53 million), while Martial's ticking contract could mean United cash in "for a fee close to €50 million (£44 million)".

With claimed interest in both Paulo Dybala and Mario Mandzukic, there's the possibility Juventus could need to move for both the Chelsea and Manchester United players.

The France worldwide started the campaign in fine fettle, appearing to have rediscovered the sparkle he boasted under Louis van Gaal.

Perhaps one reason for Martial's lack of game time at Old Trafford is the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

Earlier, NAIJ.com had reported how Manchester United coach Jose Mourinho is reportedly ready to sell Frenchman Anthony Martial this summer if he wants to leave Old Trafford.

It was Albion's first win against the Red Devils since 1982, which made unwanted history for Mourinho's side.

If Chelsea are to offer Martial an escape route with Willian going the other way, there would be an element of irony to the deal, as Chelsea beat Tottenham to the Brazilian winger's signature back in 2013.

The report says the United boss saw an opportunity to send a message to the board and took it.

The Italian champions have also been keeping tabs on Martial for a while and with only a year left on his contract with Manchester United, Juventus believe he could be the more plausible move to pull off.

Arsenal are keen to solve their defensive issues this summer and see Bailly as a potential improvement to their backline.
