Barcelona are looking to pounce and take advantage of the situation to get the nimble feet attacker.

According to Daily Mail, Barcelona are considering a £60m offer for the forward they also considered signing last summer before going for Ousmane Dembele.

The 2015 Golden Boy away winner Martial joined Manchester United from Monaco in 2015.

Although the 22-year-old has been impressive, he has however failed to convince Mourinho to give him a consistent run of games.

Since Alexis Sanchez joined from Arsenal in January 2018, Martial has only started four games without a goal.
