Anthony Martial is attracting interest from Chelsea FC, Bayern Munich and Borussia Dortmund, Sky Sports News reporter Michael Bridge has claimed.

The France international is facing an uncertain future at Old Trafford after a difficult two seasons under Portuguese head coach Jose Mourinho.

The Red Devils forward has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot in the Manchester United team in the last two Premier League campaigns.

Martial was impressive in his first season under Louis van Gaal after the winger arrived at Manchester United in a £36m deal from AS Monaco.

The 22-year-old appeared to have turned a corner when Martial scored in three successive games before Alexis Sanchez’s arrival at Old Trafford.

Martial didn’t score in the remaining months of the Premier League season after falling behind the Chile star in the pecking order.

Sky Sports News reporter Bridge is reporting that Chelsea FC competition from the Bundesliga to sign Martial this summer.

“Martial is attracting interest from Chelsea,” Bridge told the Transfer Talk podcast.

“Germany, too, with Bayern and Dortmund. Martial has said he wants to leave. It is understood Man United hierarchy is not interested in selling.”

Chelsea FC finished in fifth spot in the Premier League table last season to miss out on a Champions League spot.

New Blues manager Maurizio Sarri have already signed Italy international Jorginho in a £57m deal from Serie A side Napoli.
