Manchester United may already have Michael Carrick's long-term replacement

Manchester United may already have Michael Carrick's long-term replacement”

Chelsea are set to miss out on signing Anthony Martial this summer, as Manchester United are reportedly preparing to trigger a contract extension in the Frenchman's contract.

This comes after, Martial's agent Phillippe Lamboley, revealed that the 22-year-old does want to leave.

For Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho, the club's pre-season tour of the United States has so far been akin to a training session and that's why he's not anxious after seeing his side draw for the second consecutive time on American soil in a span of a week.

"He gives me tips, he tells me in training what to do and it's very easy when he tells you".

"You don't always get in life what you want".

Mourinho is understood to be willing to let Martial leave but United are reluctant to lose money on the France global and retain the option of triggering a year-long extension clause in his contract, thereby tying him down until 2020. "If he is coming, he has to play".

But the Portuguese coach admits that it is turning into a hard tour with 12 World Cup stars still unavailable to him.

But further reports from the Mirror add that, while Mourinho will let Martial leave it will be only for a club that isn't a direct rival and a price no less than what they bought him for. I think we played quite disciplined and compact, but also created quite a few chances. You couldn't count them on one hand. 'We left one guy behind to work with him and we knew from the physical point of view he would be okay. "We don't have a team to play much better than we did but (it's) one more training session".

Despite a majority of the fans blaming Jose Mourinho for his dip in form last term it would seem that the player himself is not doing himself any good.

Premier League? Not one hand of them, it's a bit unusual for me.

When asked after the drab stalemate whether he would be staying at United this season Martial laughed and walked away.
