Jose Mourinho has ruled out a summer move for Anthony Martial, saying Manchester United intend to work with a “good squad”.
While United have lost Zlatan Ibrahimovic, they have acquired another frontman in the form of £75 million signing Romelu Lukaku.
Martial’s role for the Red Devils has been questioned as a result, with it suggested that he could be moved on as Serie A giants Inter circle – possibly as part of a deal to bring Ivan Perisic in the opposite direction.
Mourinho has, however, moved to curb rumours, telling reporters: “Everybody is in the plan. The plan is to have a good squad, not just a good team.
“[We need] options because we have important players injured for a long time. They will be back by the end of the year so our squad is not so big and we need options. We need different players.
“Lukaku, Martial, [Marcus] Rashford – they are all different players and we need everybody.”
