Anthony Martial wants to leave, says agent

Thu Jun 14, 2018 8:20 am

Manchester United forward Anthony Martial wants to leave the club this summer, according to his agent, who said the "time has come" to move on.

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

But he said: "We have not reached an agreement for several months."

Martial, 22, scored 11 goals in 45 appearances last season, but saw his opportunities limited by the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

Lamboley said Martial, who joined United for £36m in September 2015, 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 French news outlet 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 has won the EFL Cup, FA Cup and Europa League with United.

Would be a shame if he left. He's a great talent, but I don't think Jose likes him. I think we'd regret letting him go.

He has lots of potential, however he needs to change his attitude and up his game. Losing current Martial is no loss whatsoever, but has the potential to be a big regret down the line.

I just do not understand the situation with Martial and Mourinho. When Martial has played he has looked like a potential world class player, and yet Mourinho benches him even when he is playing well. Is Mourinho using Martial wanting to leave in an attempt to justify the purchase of Sanchez, if so then Sanchez will have a massive weight to carry next season.


I can't believe it. I can't believe it. Football. Bloody hell.

Sometimes the only thing to do with a sulking Frenchman is say goodbye

I doubt we'll let him leave, but far better players have left us and we were okay

He has all the potential in the world, but one of the poorest attitudes I have ever seen in my life

I wish Roy Keane was still at the club when you take into account the little fannys we have right now

My thoughts entirely especially regarding Keano. (Y)
