Jose Mourinho has sanctioned the sale of Anthony Martial from Manchester United to Juventus, according to reports in the Italian media.

Italian outlet Tuttosport, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that Mourinho has opted to let the 22-year-old striker leave Old Trafford this summer after his lack of playing time this season.

According to the same story, Martial has grown frustrated about his lack of first-team opportunities at Old Trafford this season and is now seeking a move away this summer.

Now, the same report is claiming that Mourinho has given the green light to Manchester United selling Martial to Juventus this summer.

However, the story also says that the decision about Martial’s future beyond the summer now rests with Manchester United’s board.

It is claimed in the same article that Manchester United chief Ed Woodward is a keen admirer of Martial and that could mean he will stay at Old Trafford.

Meanwhile, Manchester United are still aiming to end the season with a trophy when they take on Chelsea FC in the FA Cup final at Wembley at the end of the month.

The Red Devils are second in the Premier League as they bid to finish as runners-up to Manchester City.
