Martial forced through a temporary move to the Spanish club but he could not make an impression on the side.

Man United fail to find buyer for Anthony Martial

Ten Hag is said to have deemed Martial surplus to requirements after his appointment as the Man United boss and was keen to offload him.

However, Manchester Evening News claims that the United are yet to get offers for the striker and now face the prospect of sticking with the Frenchman.

Reports suggest the France international is set to report for pre-season training next Monday as he bids to win the faith of Ten Hag.

Should he stay beyond this summer, he will be forced to settle for a place on the bench as he is already behind Marcus Rashford and Jadon Sancho in the pecking order for a spot on the left flank.

He could, however, provide back-up for Cristiano Ronaldo as a central striker as the Red Devils are yet to find a replacement for Edinson Cavani who departed at the end of last season.
