Manchester United have lost patience with Anthony Martial and will sell him this summer, according to reports.
The Frenchman has failed to make an impact in Erik ten Hag’s side this season after suffering several injuries and has played just 19 Premier League games.
Martial has struggled with issues relating to his hip, hamstring, back and Achilles this term and his future at the club appears to be in doubt.
The 27-year-old failed to acknowledge Ten Hag after being substituted by Wout Weghorst in the crucial 1-0 win over Bournemouth on Saturday.
As reported by The sunUnited will be looking to cash in on him this summer when the hierarchy are fed up, with Ten Hag agreeing.

The Frenchman shut out Erik ten Hag and walked straight into the Bournemouth tunnel
The Dutch manager has revealed Martial eventually returned to the Bournemouth bench after walking straight down the tunnel in frustration.
“I think he played well, he came back on the bench, he’s fine,” Ten Hag told talkSPORT. “I think he just shot in the dressing room, I don’t know what you want to do with it.”
Martial has registered eight goals and three assists in 27 appearances this season. The Frenchman is still under contract until 2024 and is reportedly on a salary of around £240,000 a week.
He endured an inconsistent spell at Manchester after joining the club for an initial fee of £36million in 2015 and spent the second half of last season on loan at Sevilla.
Victory over Gary O’Neil’s side put United on course to return to the Champions League next season ahead of Thursday’s clash with Chelsea.
Ten Hag added: “It’s a final on Thursday and I hope all the fans are ready because we want it to be done on Thursday.” So we still need a good performance and it won’t be easy.
“You have to be ready, you have to be front and centre, you have to be at the highest level of energy. You have to be focused.
“And then it is possible. We know we are strong, especially at Old Trafford.
