Football News: Martial’s agent has confirmed that the Frenchman is ready to leave United.
Martial makes his decision to leave United.
Under the special one the 22-year-old has fallen down in the pecking order for Manchester United, he has started less than half of United’s matches in this period for Manchester United.
In 2015 he joined Manchester United from Monaco, and in his debut season, he has scored 11 goals for the Red Devils in his 31 appearances under Louis van Gaal. On this season he spent most of his time on the bench, and his lack of game time is the reason French gaffer excluded him from the world cup squad.
Martial’s agent claim now Martial does not feel united want him anymore after they signed Sanchez in the previous transfer window.
His agent stated: "After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United,"
"For now it's premature to talk about [why]. Anthony will speak later to discuss all of this.
"United wants to extend Anthony's deal and does not want him to leave but we do not find an agreement for several months. I think that when Manchester United – which is the most powerful club in the world, it must be remembered – does not find an agreement in eight months of negotiations, it is that it does not really want to make him an important player in its squad.
"It is a well-considered decision. However, it is quite obvious and it is very important to remember that he is under contract, that Manchester United will have the last word and that we will respect the decision of the club, he will go to the end of his commitment [if required].
"However, we do not have the same vision on Anthony's future. Today, Anthony is disappointed because he has shown for three seasons the love he had for the club and his supporters. Besides, I can tell you that without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would have already asked to leave United.
"However, Anthony got hooked, he showed great professionalism, he was successful. I think he has done his best for three years. It is important to remember that this season he scored 11 goals and gave 10 assists in five months. He was elected three times player of the month by the fans.
"Then arrived the transfer window of January. I will not comment on the consequences of this transfer window. Everyone will have his opinion, I think he must resume the course of his career. The time has come."
