United have previously been linked with Kieran Trippier amid the search for a player to provide healthy competition for Aaron Wan-Bissaka.

Atletico have long been a fan of Martial and believe his public stance on his departure could eventually open the door for him to complete his move to the Wanda Metropolitano.

It is unclear if the Red Devils will agree to let Martial leave in January as caretaker manager Ralf Rangnick recently downplayed the reports.

‘I do not communicate with agents through media and press. The player hasn’t talked to me or us about it,’ he said.

‘After the last training session before the match against Crystal Palace, after training with his teammates, he informed the doctor and the medical department that he would not be present because his knee pain was too great. We have to wait and see.

‘Maybe he can train again [on Sunday] But I have to talk to the doctor first. Honestly, what his agent said through the media didn’t interest me much. ‘
