Anthony Martial's agent confirms client wants to leave Manchester United

Anthony Martial's agent confirms client wants to leave Manchester United

Anthony Martial's agent has said his client wants to leave Manchester United this summer.

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".

Many at United are ready to block that request, but The Telegraph are reporting that Mourinho will give in to Martial's demands if he can land a high-quality replacement.

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

Sources told ESPN FC in May that United would listen to offers if Martial pushed for a move, but also that the club wanted to keep him amid reports of a possible swap for Tottenham's Toby Alderweireld.

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

"I think when United, the most powerful club in the world, is not in agreement in eight months of negotiations, it's that they don't really want to make him an important player in the team".

"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, and he will fulfil his commitment to them".

"Anthony is disappointed because he has shown for three seasons he had for the club and its supporters".

His woes at Manchester United cost him a place in the World Cup squad for France this summer, who are heading to Russian Federation looking to take back football's most coveted trophy. "On top of that, I can tell you that without the fans' unconditional support Anthony would have already asked for a transfer", he added.

"Everyone will have his opinion, I think he must resume the course of his career".

"The only thing I can say is that many coaches appreciate his profile and that many clubs want to show their projects to Anthony".
