Manchester United began their 2018/19 Premier League season with a win against Leicester City, and it was a match that certainly helped lift the negativity surrounding the club and their summer gone by.

Jose Mourinho was all praises for his players on the day, and also spoke highly about an otherwise targeted duo of Luke Shaw and Paul Pogba.

However, the absence of Anthony Martial from the starting XI, and him not being involved in the game at all, did raise a few eyebrows yet again.

Meanwhile, if reports from La Repubblica are believed to be true, then AC Milan could be eyeing a move for the French winger this summer.

Reason Why Man Utd Didn’t Sign Yerry Mina

The Rossoneri are looking to strike a superstar deal before the market in Italy comes to a close, and Martial fits their bill perfectly. Playing time has been hard to come by for the youngster under Mourinho’s reign, and if the first game of the new campaign is any indication, another year of bench seems to be coming the forward’s way.

In order to get their man, the Serie A side will have to splash the cash in a hefty amount, as the Portuguese tactician has already made clear his intentions of not letting the player leave.

The France international is currently having to fight for his spot in the side with Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford, both preferring the left wing position.

The Italian side is on the lookout for a right winger, however, and that could be enough reason for the 22-year-old wide-man to let this deal pass by.

United need depth in the squad to compete and go the distances in the league as well as in the Champions League, and retaining the services of Martial will certainly add value to the same.
