Anthony Martial will not be sold by Manchester United this summer and the Red Devils “rely” on him, according to the striker’s cousin.

The 21-year-old’s future has been a source of speculation in recent weeks amid claims that he could be shipped out on loan.

However, the striker kicked off the Premier League season in positive fashion by coming off the bench to score a goal and notch up an assist in the 4-0 victory over West Ham United on Sunday.

Now, the player’s cousin Jema has commented on Martial’s situation on Twitter, before swiftly deleting the post.

He wrote, according to the Daily Mail: “For Manchester United, Anthony’s departure is not a possibility, even on loan. They rely on him.”

Martial will be hoping to feature for Manchester United when the Red Devils take on Swansea City in the Premier League at the Liberty Stadium on Saturday lunchtime.

The Red Devils are top of the Premier League table after their impressive victory over West Ham last weekend.

Manchester United, despite finishing sixth in the table last season, are also preparing for a return to the Champions League after they won the Europa League in Jose Mourinho’s first campaign in charge at the club last term.
