Jose Mourinho Addresses Anthony Martial's Future
Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho has given an insight into France international Anthony Martial's future at Old Trafford.
The 21-year-old has been linked with a move away from the Red Devils on numerous occasions in this transfer window, with the latest reports suggesting that he could be loaned out to Serie A side Inter Milan.
After United's friendly against Sampdoria on Wednesday night, however, Mourinho made it clear he wants the young Frenchman to stay.
"Everybody is in the plan. The plan is to have a good squad, not just a good team," the Portuguese tactician said, as quoted by the Daily Express.
"(We need) options because we have important players injured for a long time. They will be back by the end of the year so our squad is not so big and we need options. We need different players.
"Lukaku, Martial, Rashford – they are all different players and we need everybody.
"It's going to be good, to be funny, to choose the team for every match according to the plan or the opponent. So the squad is good."
Martial made 42 appearances for the Manchester club last season, scoring eight goals and assisting eight further strikes.
