Anthony Martial is Jose Mourinho’s third choice winger at Manchester United: report

Manchester United star Anthony Martial is reportedly Jose Mourinho‘s third choice winger behind the likes of Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford.

The arrival of the Chilean at Old Trafford in the January transfer window raised serious question marks over both youngsters futures at the club.

Since then reports of Martial and Rashford’s desire to leave have continuously grown though the claims for the former are supposed to be more believable.

Juventus are said to be sniffing around for the Frenchman and will likely pounce should there be an opportunity to do so.

There were hopes that Sanchez would be able to play in other positions for United but it’s since become clear that he’s best in the left-wing position.

According to Metro, the Times report that Anthony is Jose’s third choice left winger due to the player’s concentration levels and how he fails to apply himself properly in training.

There could be some truth to the claims as the young attacker has proven to be a little inconsistent over the course of a season and that could come from his mentality.

Anthony Martial did admit that he had a poor season last year due to family matters that affected his professional life.

There wouldn’t be a surprise if that’s the case this time as well though reports of him leaving to Juventus, as strong as they are, could be due to his ongoing contract situation with the Red Devils.

Jose Mourinho was said to offer a new contract to Martial but talks stalled or even never came about much to the anger of the player who saw the likes of Marcos Rojo securing his future at the club.
