Manchester United forward, Anthony Martial, has left their pre-season tour of the United States, to attend the birth of his son.
Martial flew home from Los Angeles, to be with girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz and will not play against AC Milan at the StubHub Center on Wednesday.
The Frenchman is already a father to two-year-old Peyton, from a previous marriage to Samantha Jacquelinet.
Martial was granted permission by manager Jose Mourinho, but his departure comes at a time when the 22-year-old is actively trying to leave the club.
Sources have told ESPN FC that Mourinho is ready to cash in, because he does not want to upset the dressing room with an unhappy player.
Bayern Munich, Tottenham and Chelsea are among the clubs interested.
