Juventus are considering testing Manchester United's resolve over Anthony Martial amid fresh doubts over the France forward's future at Old Trafford.

The Italian giants are among a number of clubs, including Paris St-Germain, Inter Milan, Atletico Madrid and Tottenham, who are monitoring Martial's situation at United.

Although Martial is understood to be settled off the field in Manchester and ideally wants to stay at United, he has become increasingly disenchanted by a lack of starting opportunities and a regular run in the team.

He has not started a game since the 2-0 FA Cup quarter-final win over Brighton on St Patrick's Day, when manager Jose Mourinho accused his attacking players of "hiding", and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal in January has placed another obstacle in his path.

Martial, 22, who joined United for £44m from Monaco in 2015, has reportedly recently rejected a new contract offer from United.
