Martial was handed the number nine jersey when he arrived at the club from AS Monaco in 2015, but was forced to settle for number 11 when the Swedish striker arrived.

The change in shirt number also reportedly created a rift between the French striker and Mourinho, but his agent, Philippe Lamboley has denied that.

"I am not going to lie about it, it hurt him when Manchester United took the number nine jersey off him. He was surprised by it and he was disappointed for a few days," Lamboley told RMC.

"But he is a professional. He knew that he had to fight back.

"Personally, I did not accept the decision, which I thought was disrespectful and misplaced. I let the United hierarchy know how I felt. You do not do things like that. We have turned the page, but not forgotten about it."
