Jose Mourinho has identified three players who can replace Anthony Martial at Manchester United, according to a report in England.

Manchester Evening News, as quoted by the Daily Express, is reporting that the Red Devils are lining up three players who are capable of replacing the France international at Old Trafford.

The same article states that Real Madrid super star Gareth Bale is at the top of Mourinho’s wish list to replace the France international in the Manchester United team.

According to the same story, Manchester United are also weighing up a potential move to sign Croatia and Inter Milan winger Ivan Perisic in the summer transfer window.

The Daily Express is reporting that Chelsea FC winger Willian is the third potential candidate to fill Martial’s void at Old Trafford if Manchester United sell the 22-year-old.

Manchester United brought in Martial in a £36m deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in the 2015 summer transfer window.

The Red Devils forward flourished under Dutch coach Louis van Gaal and finished his debut season at Old Trafford with 19 goals in all competitions.

However, the Tottenham target has struggled to hold down a regular starting spot under Jose Mourinho over the past two seasons.
