Anthony Martial is likely to stay at Manchester United this summer, according to the BBC’s Simon Stone.
The Frenchman appeared destined to leave Old Trafford when his agent claimed in June that they had decided moving on would be the best thing for his career.
But as of yet no move has gone through, with Man United – who value the winger at around £80m – reluctant to sell given the lack of replacements available.
And according to Stone, Martial looks set to remain at Old Trafford beyond the transfer deadline with the club refusing to consider offers from other clubs.
In addition, it is looking increasingly likely Anthony Martial will remain @ManUtd beyond Thursday. Club not actively looking to sell at this stage.

Thursday marks the deadline for Premier League clubs making transfers, although this does not mean players cannot be sold off up until August 31.
But United will not want to do that. Not by a long stretch. They have failed to identify another attacking player in this window. Gareth Bale, Willian, Ante Rebic and even Ivan Perisic have all been mooted as potential replacements, but with just three days left it looks as if that ship has sailed.
That Martial has returned to training in Manchester – he did a double session on Sunday and missed the clash with Bayern as a result – is a sign that he remains determined to impress his boss.
