Sky Sports News understands all three clubs fancy their chances of landing the 22-year-old, who has a year left on his contract at Old Trafford.
It is understood Martial has told Jose Mourinho he wants to leave Old Trafford, although the club's hierarchy think otherwise.
Martial's contract is said to have an option to keep him at the club until 2020 and Chelsea are yet to make a formal offer.
England and Leicester star Harry Maguire, Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld and AC Milan's Leonardo Bonucci have been earmarked as potential defensive targets by United, according to the Daily Mail.
Landing Maguire, 25, could cost United up to £65m and would likely see Mourinho have to sell one of his centre-backs.
United reportedly enquired about Alderweireld in May, while Bonucci is said to be on a watch list.
United right-back Matteo Darmian, meanwhile, could be on his way to Napoli, reports The Sun.
With only a year left on his contract, the Reds could be keen to shift the 28-year-old before he becomes a free agent.
Darmian played against San Jose Earthquakes on Sunday, but was used by Mourinho just 17 times in all competitions last season.
Napoli president Aurelio De Laurentiis has voiced admiration for the Italian who began his career in the Serie A.
