Martial, who is under contract with United until 2024, is expected to leave Old Trafford in a bid to secure regular first-team football.
The 26-year-old United forward has fallen down the pecking order after the arrivals of Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho last summer.
Martial has not featured under interim manager Ralf Rangnick and only managed 10 appearances under former United head coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer this season.
The France international has been subject to intense transfer speculation linking him with Sevilla, Newcastle, Barcelona and Juventus.
According to reports, Martial has ‘no interest’ in signing for Newcastle amid the Premier League club being locked in a relegation battle.
Sport (via Sport Witness) reports that the United star has already ‘refused to sign’ for the Magpies.
The Spanish newspaper claims that Newcastle tabled an offer of ‘just over’ €35m (£30m) for the wantaway striker.
Newcastle identified Martial as a potential replacement for striker Callum Wilson, who picked up a calf injury in his side’s 1-1 draw against United last December.
It is believed that the Newcastle target wants to sign for Barcelona and is currently ‘freezing all other offers on the table’ to secure his preferred transfer.
However, Barcelona have already splashed out £46.3m to sign Ferran Torres from Manchester City and would reportedly only consider a loan move for Martial.
The La Liga club are still managing their precarious finances and United would prefer to offload Martial rather than commit to a loan deal.
Rangnick revealed that Martial told him that he “feels it’s the right time for a change” and the United interim boss says it is “understandable” to hear his feelings.
“He explained to me he’s been at Manchester United now for the last seven years and he feels it’s the right time for a change, to go somewhere else,” he said last December.
“I think in a way this is understandable, I could follow his thoughts but on the other hand, it’s also important to see the situation of the club.
“We have COVID times, we have three competitions in which we still have high ambitions and want to be as successful as we can be.”
