Martial had an impressive start to the 2017/18 season but his campaign derailed after the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal.

Sanchez took Martial’s favoured position on the left side of the Manchester United attack and the France forward was a frustrated figure on the bench.

On Wednesday, Martial’s agent revealed the 22-year-old wants to leave Old Trafford.

Philippe Lamboley told French radio station RMC: “After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United. Anthony is sad about his situation at Manchester.

“He loves the club and the fans, he showed it for three years.

“Without the great support from the fans, he would have already asked to leave the club.”

And according to the Telegraph, Martial is one of three targets Chelsea are pursuing.

The report says the Blues have Nice midfielder Jean Seri and Bayern Munich striker Robert Lewandowski on their “radar”.

But Chelsea’s hopes of bringing in players have been hampered by the standoff with manager Antonio Conte.

Chelsea want to sack Conte but are unwilling to pay him £9million in compensation.

That means Chelsea are left with a manager they don’t want and the Italian has no intention of resigning.

Maurizio Sarri and Laurent Blanc are the leading names to eventually replace Conte.
