Philippe Lamboley, agent to Manchester United forward Anthony Martial, has revealed the player wants to leave the club.
Martial joined from Monaco in 2015 and made an instant impact in his debut season under Louis van Gaal, scoring 11 goals in 31 Premier League games.
However, the France international has found it tough under Jose Mourinho, with 12 of his 30 league appearances in 2017/2018 coming off the bench.
“After considering all possibilities and options, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United,” Lamboley explained to RMC Sport.
“There are many reasons, for now it is too early to discuss it. Anthony will talk soon to go through that.
“Man United want to extend Anthony’s deal and they do now want him to leave, but we have not come to an agreement for several months. I think that when Man United, who are the most powerful club, cannot come to an agreement after eight months it is because they really don’t want to make him a key player.
“The decision is related to that. It is a decision that has been thought through thoroughly. However, it is important to remember that he is under contract, Man United have the last word and we will respect the club’s decision.”
