Manchester United are prepared to use Anthony Martial in their bid to sign Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils are keen on a deal to sign the 19-year-old USA international as they look to bring the highly-rated midfielder to Old Trafford.

The same report says that Jose Mourinho has already deemed Martial to be surplus to requirements at Old Trafford and the Red Devils are ready to sell the Frenchman this summer.

Now, it is being claimed that Manchester United could be prepared to offer Martial to Dortmund as part of a cash-plus-player deal to land Pulisic this summer.

The same report says that Pulisic is rated at around £40m as the Red Devils look to try and conclude a deal to sign the talented teenager this summer.

It is also claimed that the likes of Chelsea FC and Liverpool FC have shown interest in landing the teenager this summer.

Manchester United are likely to be linked with a host of players in the coming weeks and months as the Red Devils look to assemble a squad capable of winning the title next season.
