Anthony Martial wants to leave Man Utd in January – Agent

Anthony Martial’s agent has claimed that his client wishes to leave Manchester United during the January transfer window.

The former Monaco striker had an outstanding 2019/20 season, scoring 23 goals in 48 appearances across all competitions, but struggled last season, scoring only four Premier League goals.

This poor form has continued into this season, with only one goal in ten games. He has started just two Premier League games, with Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho’s summer signings limiting his opportunities.

Now, his representative, Philippe Lamboley, executive director of USFA Management, has indicated that they will pursue a transfer away from Old Trafford during the forthcoming transfer window.

He told Sky Sports:

“Anthony wishes to leave the club in January. He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.”

Martial did not appear in either of interim manager Ralf Rangnick’s first two games in charge, a 1-0 victory over Crystal Palace and a 1-1 Champions League draw with Young Boys.

He is now sidelined with a knee injury and will miss Saturday’s trip to Norwich, where United can move up to sixth if they avoid defeat at Carrow Road.

Anthony trained with us on Saturday in the final session before the Crystal Palace game,” Rangnick said recently. “Half an hour after training, the doctor and the medical department informed me he has some pain on his knee.

“We had a meeting together with the doctor, the medical department and Anthony and we agreed he should try to recover from that. It’s not a fresh injury, it’s symptoms he had in the past already.

“We need to make sure he is reducing the amount of pain in the next couple of days and, hopefully, have him back next week.”
