Manchester United star Anthony Martial has responded to rumours over his potential exit after his future was thrown up in the air.
The Frenchman has once again been linked with a move away from the club after he left the pre-season tour to be with the mother of his newborn child.
Reports claimed Martial was even fined for his actions and there’s been confusion why he hasn’t returned to United as it’s been almost a week since the birth.
When Jose Mourinho was asked where the former AS Monaco man was or what was going on, he simply replied he doesn’t know.
There’s clearly a lack of communication between the two and maybe even a breakdown in their relationship which could see Anthony depart.
”Thank you all for your posts. My little Swan is fine, for the mom it was harder but thanks to God she's better now. Sorry but my family will always come first… Back tomorrow in Manchester.” #mufc https://t.co/3feLhgjobf

The attacker’s “family will always come first” comment could be in response to Mourinho publicly stating his dismay at Martial not having returned yet.
It’s unlikely the youngster’s actions will put him in the Portuguese manager’s good books and he may even suffer with less game time this season.
This summer was the perfect opportunity for Anthony to establish himself in the starting XI with the absence of some of the regulars but he failed to do so before even leaving the tour.
