Anthony Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley has claimed that his client wants to leave Manchester United in this transfer window.
Martial has been struggling to start under Jose Mourinho at Old Trafford which caused him to be linked with a move away.
The 22-year-old has been linked with several Premier League clubs including Tottenham Hotspur, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool.
Mourinho’s side are willing to extend the Frenchman’s contract as the Red Devils do not want him to leave.
However, the agent has made it clear that there was no agreement reached between both sides.
“We have not reached an agreement for several months,” Lamboley said.
“Martial was disappointed because he has shown his love for the club and the supporters for three seasons.”
“After thinking about all the factors and possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United,” Lamboley told RMC Sport. “There are lots of factors, and right now it’s too early to talk about them.”
“I think that when United, the most powerful club in the world, do not find an agreement after eight months of negotiations then they do not really want to keep such an important player in their squad. That’s why this decision has come – it’s a well-thought-out decision.”
“Everyone will have their opinion but I think he needs to resume his career. The time has come.”
Martial, who joined United for £36m in September 2015, has scored 36 goals for United since his move from Monaco.
