Jose Mourinho 'approves Anthony Martial exit'

Eric Bailly misses Manchester United awards dinner after dental problem

Eric Bailly misses Manchester United awards dinner after dental problem

Martial will want to win the 2017/18 FA Cup title on May 19 with Manchester United before his imminent departure at Old Trafford.

The arrival of Alexis Sanchez at Old Trafford in January further threatened the 22-year-old's chance at a starting berth, with the forward also behind Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford in the pecking order.

Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho wasn't pleased with his side's display in Friday's 1-0 loss to Brighton and intends to make changes to the squad during this summer's window.

Pires, a former left winger just like Martial, can see the player fitting in at the Emirates.

According to Daily Mail, Chelsea are determined to strengthen their ranks in the summer, and are keen on signing Martial.

"I think this is not the right moment to speak about this".

Martial was enjoying a good season at United and was consistently featuring before Mourinho chose to bring Arsenal forward Alexis Sanchez to the club in the January transfer window as part of a swap deal for another forward whose game time became rapidly problematic- Henrikh Mkhitaryan. "I would welcome him at Arsenal".

Following the match, Mourinho slammed critics that insisted he gave more playing time to Rashford and Martial.

Bailly also failed to attend United's end of season awards dinner on Tuesday night and while the club said his absence was down to a dental problem, it's still heightened rumours of a bust-up with Mourinho.
