Anthony Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley has revealed that the French forward wants to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window after struggling to get game time this season.
The 26-year-old, who joined United from Monaco in 2015, has started only two Premier League games this season and has scored just once.
“He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.”
Martial still has at least three years left on his contract at Old Trafford, having signed a new deal in 2019 that includes an option to extend for a further year.
He has fallen down the pecking order at United, who have an array of attacking talent to choose from, including Cristiano Ronaldo, Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho and Mason Greenwood.
While he did not mention Martial by name, United interim manager Ralf Rangnick hinted there could be departures in January when he was asked about the bloated size of his squad on Friday.
“It’s still a big squad. We need to make sure that players want to stay here,” he said.
“If they see they are not getting enough game time here it might make sense to speak to players individually and see if a loan deal might make sense, but right now it’s too early.”
