The players Jose Mourinho could sell and sign in January

Anthony Martial has scored six goals this season

Anthony Martial has scored six goals this season

Once considered the next big thing for United when he signed for the club in 2015, the former Monaco forward has been reduced to a bit-part player under Mourinho this season.

His aim seems exclusively to be to frustrate his opponents, hope to make it to half time level and then maybe consider trying to nick a win late on or, more often than not, simply look to shut the game down at 0-0.

Last year Martial struggled to break into the side, and there were constant rumors surrounding his relationship with Jose Mourinho.

Jose Mourinho has insisted that he enjoys positive relationship with Ander Herrera at Manchester United. I prefer to start games and show what I'm capable of. With PSG nearly guaranteed a place in the competition year in, year out, the squad of players at the manager's disposal make them favourites to go deep in the competition.

The coming summer promises to be a very important one for United, who have a number of players either out contract or entering their last 12 months of their deal.

These words are music to United fans. We have to try to find balances and I'm really happy with what the team is doing.

"It's unfortunate there's now an worldwide break but I think we'll have to regroup and in our next game make sure we put on a performance to rectify this".

"I have faith in my qualities, and I think the manager has confidence in me, too".

And if, as Zinedine Zidane managed with the reformulated Galacticos of Real Madrid, he can balance these fragile talents off one another, the Champions League could be theirs for the taking. This attacking trident could potentially terrorize Europe for years to come if they meshed. With Mourinho opting to field a defensive lineup, Martial has found himself out of the starting eleven more often than not this season.

The club's board is said to be guarding their coffers closely and want to get a tighter grip on spending before agreeing to fork out any more money on new players. And with more playing time, his role and abilities will only increase.
