The France international moved to Old Trafford back in the summer of 2015, when Louis van Gaal agreed to pay a whopping figure thought to potentially rise to as high as £50 million from Lyon.
But last season he didn’t really hit the heights some had hoped for, and when you aren’t playing well under Jose Mourinho, your lifespan at a club can be very short.
And the Mirror are claiming Arsene Wenger is ready to part with £40 million to bring the attacker to north London, but there’s just one problem: nobody actually believes United would even contemplate selling:

If Mourinho sells Martial to another Premier League club that'll be the biggest L United will have taken since that visit to Stadium MK.

Think Martial would rather go and beg his ex to take him back than join Arsenal?

Martial linked with arsenal for 40 mill, we paid 50+ for the cunt. Why would we sell to a rival for less. Classic arsenal?

Do Arsenal fans actually think there's a chance Jose would sell Martial to Arsene Wenger?

Would United really consider selling Martial for a loss after such a short space of time?
He’s only 21, and surely you’d think Mourinho would persevere for at least one more year?
What do you think?
