Anthony Martial wants to stay in the Premier League if he leaves Manchester United this summer, alerting both Chelsea and Tottenham, according to reports in the British media.

The Sun is reporting that the 22-year-old striker would want to join another Premier League club if he were to leave Old Trafford this summer.

The same story says that Martial has made it clear to Jose Mourinho that he wants to leave Old Trafford this summer after having failed to earn a call-up to the France squad for the World Cup.

Martial struggled to hold down a regular starting place in the first team at Manchester United last season and his future has been a source of speculation all summer.

According to the same story, Manchester United are ready to sell Martial over the next few weeks but only if he moves to a foreign club.

However, it is being reported in the same story that Martial is preparing to go head to head with Manchester United because he would prefer to stay in the Premier League.

According to the article, Chelsea FC have been keeping a close eye on Martial as they fight to keep hold of Willian, who is a target for FC Barcelona.
