Now Spanish publication Marca report Sevilla are ready to test to water by launching an ambitious move for the 22-year-old.

And it is also claimed they have targeted Paris Saint-Germain star Julian Draxler as they look to bring in a big name before the transfer window closes on August 31.

Martial looked set to depart Old Trafford over the summer but the club refused to sell him to a Premier League rival.

Both Tottenham and Chelsea were keen on signing the ex-Monaco attacker.

Mourinho is believed to be happy to let him go in January in order to raise extra funds for reinforcements.

However, SunSport exclusively revealed Martial has performed a stunning U-turn on his United future and now wants to stay and fight for his place.

His agent insisted his client wanted to leave when the transfer window opened but the star is relishing the opportunity to prove himself after Mourinho refused to let him join another English side.

Martial started just two of United‘s final 10 league games last season, which cost him his World Cup place, and he fell out with his manager last month when the hotshot left United’s US tour to attend the birth of his child in Paris.
