However, Martial, 22, was among the names originally tipped to be included in the transfer.

And The Times report the French striker was “disappointed at not having the chance to discuss a move to Arsenal in January.”

Despite flashes of brilliance in his three seasons at United, Martial has failed to shine on a consistent basis and it has led to him losing his place in Jose Mourinho‘s side.

The former Monaco man has only started an FA Cup clash with Brighton since being hauled off against Chelsea on February 25.

However, Martial’s cousin Jema insists the fault lies with the solely at Mourinho’s door, highlighting previous examples of the United boss’ tactics inhibiting the talents of top attacking players.

He tweeted: “It is impossible to progress under the orders of this coach. Too many examples prove it.

“If you see the last two years and the past with Salah, De Bruyne or Lukaku at Chelsea, I don’t invent.

“I think that for young players who can improve he’s not the good one. Just a view.”
