It sounds like a minor striker-centric mutiny is brewing at Manchester United, with a couple of young forwards reported to be rather less than satisfied with their lot under Jose Mourinho.

First up is Anthony Martial, who has been used sparingly to the point that he has only played a full 90 minutes on four occasions in the Premier League this season.

In fact, due to combination of a thigh tweak and generally being out of favour, the 22-year-old hasn’t turned out for United since the FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton on 17th March.

According to Miguel Delaney in the Independent, Martial’s preference is to remain at Old Trafford. However, club sources have also claimed there is a “growing expectation” that the French international will be deemed surplus as and when Mourinho sets about adding to his attacking ranks this coming summer.

As such, Juventus are now monitoring the situation very intently.

Over in the Daily Mirror, it’s being speculated that Marcus Rashford is increasingly “unhappy” with his lack of participation of late – though that is slightly undermined by the fact that the 20-year-old has made 43 appearances for United this season, second only to Romelu Lukaku.

However, only 22 of those have been starts and Rashford is said to be particularly miffed about only being given eight minutes in the 3-2 derby win over Man City on Sunday.

While upping sticks and walking out of the door may seem a little dramatic, perhaps Martial and Rashford are looking at the likes of former Chelsea stockpile victims Kevin de Bruyne and Mohamed Salah and starting to consider life elsewhere.

    Well if reports from one single journalist in the independent and the sun say it’s true then that must be it. So long lads.

    Deffo worth a while article written about it as well.

    Martial can leave, I don’t really care. Too inconsistent, too pedestrian, zero urgency. But Rashford, we can’t lose him. Fantastic player. Big game player and Man United through and through.
