Manchester United would be open to discussing the sale of Anthony Martial to AS Roma, according to reports in England.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Serie A giants want to sign the France international on a season-long loan deal.

However, the same story reveals that the Red Devils don’t want Martial to go out on loan despite a difficult first season under Jose Mourinho.

According to the article, AS Roma could come back with a £30m bid for the 21-year-old attacker to test Manchester United’s resolve to keep Martial.

The Serie A giants are thought to be hoping to capitalise on Martial’s uncertain status at Old Trafford under Portuguese coach Mourinho.

Martial scored four goals and made six assists in 18 starts and four substitute appearances in a disappointing second season in the Premier League.

Mourinho’s predecessor Louis van Gaal signed the France star in a world-record deal for a teenager in 2015 after Manchester United paid £36m for the striker with the transfer fee potentially rising to £58m.

Manchester United won the EFL Cup and the Europa League in Mourinho’s first season but finished in sixth place in the Premier League table.
