If reports making rounds are anything to go by, Chelsea are reportedly one of a number of top European clubs interested in signing Manchester United forward Anthony Martial this summer.
As reported by Sky Sports, likes of Chelsea, Borussia Dortmund and Bayern Munich are all keen on signing the Frenchman this summer who has one year remaining on his current contract with the Old Trafford club.
Martial is currently on pre-season tour with Man United in America and Sky Sports are reporting that the winger has told Jose Mourinho that he wants to leave the club after registering just 26 out of 45 appearances in the Premier League last season of which most of the appearance were as a substitute.

Although, Sky Sports are claiming the club’s hierarchy are not interested in selling the £65,000-a-wk star and could trigger the extra year option in contract until 2020.
Chelsea are yet to make offer for Martial but should the Blues sell the winger or Hazard then it is likely that they will bid for the United man.
However, Mourinho has hinted that Romelu Lukaku and Marcus Rashford could be used sparingly after their exertions in the World Cup this summer, leaving him with fewer options up front.
