The France international forward continues to generate transfer speculation, but his manager at Old Trafford is still counting on him for 2017-18

Jose Mourinho has ruled out a summer move for Anthony Martial, saying Manchester United intend to work with a “good squad”.

The France international is among those to have generated exit talk amid more big-money arrivals at Old Trafford.

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.

"It’s going to be good, to be funny, to choose the team for every match according to the plan or the opponent. So the squad is good."

Mourinho: Matic is a genius

Along with Lukaku, Mourinho has also drafted in Victor Lindelof and Nemanja Matic this summer.

He has admitted to looking for one more signing before the window slams shut, with United still seeking greater depth to their ranks.

Matic made his debut in a midweek friendly clash with Sampdoria, with the £40 million arrival from Premier League champions Chelsea helping the Red Devils to a 2-1 win in Dublin.
