Martial wants to quit Man United according to his agent

Martial wants to quit Man United according to his agent

In another telling quote, Lamboley appeared to suggest issues with United boss Jose Mourinho have influenced Martial's decision: "Anthony simply wants to play, enjoy football again".

Later the same month, Mourinho pointedly avoided answering a direct question about Martial's and Marcus Rashford's playing time, per Mike Whalley of the Telegraph.

"After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United", Lamboley told RMC Sport, as translated by the Mirror.

The forward was not included in France's squad for the World Cup having struggled to make much impact at United since Mourinho's arrival.

Philippe Lamboley claims United want to extend Martial's deal and do not want the Frenchman to leave.

"It's important to remember that he is under contract and that Manchester United will have the last word".


Martial's contract expires at the end of next season so if he is dead-set on going elsewhere in the current transfer window, United will be very keen to sell in order to prevent the risk of their £36m signing leaving for nothing.

The Portuguese manager will gladly let the 22-year-old but only if he can get a decent replacement in.

I think that when Man United, who are the most powerful club, can not come to an agreement after eight months it is because they really don't want to make him a key player.

"However, we do not have the same vision on Anthony's future". He was chosen Player of the Month three times by fans. Today, Anthony is disappointed because he demonstrated for three seasons his love for the club and its supporters. Without the unconditional support of the fans he would have already asked to leave United. Then came the January transfer window. "Anthony just wants to play, to feel happy and connect with his coach, that is essential". The time has come.' He added.

Tottenham are also interested, and Martial has intimated that he would be prepared to move to White Hart Lane, though United would rather he was sold overseas.
