Manchester United are ready to sell Anthony Martial this summer after Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has been left disappointed with the striker’s attitude in training, according to reports.

Martial was the subject of plenty of speculation last summer, when it seemed almost certain he’d either leave the club or stay for one last season to run down his contract. Instead, he committed his long-term future to Manchester United in January, signing a new deal lasting until 2024, with the option to extend until 2025.

Just a few months later, reports in the English media suggest the 23-year-old has fallen out with United boss Solskjaer, who is concerned by his attitude in training. Solskjaer publicly suggested certain individuals would be on the way out this summer after their terrible end to the season, and the media are implying is Martial is one of them.

Since signing his new contract in late January, Martial has scored two goals and provided one assist in 12 appearances. Most recently, he was benched against Chelsea and then left out completely against Huddersfield. Clearly, there’s some truth in the rumours that Solskjaer isn’t happy with him, and with good reason.

Arsenal have been linked with Martial plenty of times in the past, from when he was still a Monaco player to last summer when his contract was running down. It’s hard to see Manchester United selling for a decent fee with Martial’s new deal in place though. For now, a Gunners bid seems unlikely.
