Both Mourinho and Solskjaer wanted to sell Man United star who’s causing Ralf Rangnick major problem

Both Jose Mourinho and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer reportedly wanted to get rid of Manchester United misfit Anthony Martial, as Ralf Rangnick sees his own issues with the striker emerge.

The France forward is currently making headlines for all the wrong reasons and was forced to come out and defend himself after Rangnick claimed that Martial didn’t want to be involved in the matchday squad for the draw with Aston Villa on Saturday evening.

The agent of the 26-year-old admitted last month that his client wanted a move for more game time. 

Indeed, the former Monaco man has scored just once in 10 appearances in all competitions this season.

Martial, who still has more than three years left on his contract, is expected to be sold or loaned out – depending on what works out better for the club or player.

But according to reports in The Times and The Athletic, both Mourinho and Solskjaer wanted the attacker out of the club prior to this latest episode.

Martial has failed to live up to the huge promise he showed early in his Old Trafford career.

He joined in 2015 for a world-record fee for a teenager of £36million, potentially rising to £58m.

However, he has scored just 79 goals in 268 games for the club – with the 2019-20 a standout year when he notched 23 times and was handed a bumper new contract.

Martial has also suffered from numerous managers playing him in different attacking positions.

While that certainly hasn’t helped his cause, the feeling now is he needs a move to rekindle his career.
