Anthony Martial’s future at Manchester United is uncertain at the moment, and he could be shipped out, with some top European clubs monitoring his situation.

The Frenchman, who started off well last season, lost the momentum and was restricted to the bench, where he often came on as a substitute.

Jose Mourinho wasn’t impressed by him in the latter stages of the campaign, when Romelu Lukaku got injured, and the situation at the moment isn’t looking good for Martial.

Moreover, his agent Philippe Lamboley revealed last month that the youngster wants to depart from Manchester, as he is frustrated at the lack of opportunities.

But now, according to latest report by German football expert Christian Falk, it is stated that German champions Bayern Munich are interested in Martial.

Their cost manager Laurent Busser has made Martial one of their top targets to replace old horses Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery. The two veterans are 34 and 35 years old respectively, and the club is looking for worthy successors to replace the legends.

A viable option for them is Martial. If the youngster does impress Jose in the coming weeks, then it would be interesting to see whether he is allowed to leave or a viable deal is agreed.

Besides Bayern, English giants Tottenham Hotspur too, are believed to be interested in signing the player.
