Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has decided to leave Old Trafford this summer after negotiations over a new contract collapsed, his agent has confirmed.

Philippe Lamboley told RMC Sport (translated by the Evening Standard) that there were many teams interested in the 22-year-old:

“I can’t say anything at the moment, but clearly, from the moment a player like Anthony is on the market, many clubs are interested. All I can say is that many coaches appreciate his talents and many clubs are proposing their projects to Anthony.”

Martial is believed to be a target for us, as well as a number of other clubs this summer but United are said to be reluctant to sell the Frenchman.

Although he did make 45 appearances in all competitions last season, scoring 11 goals and providing nine assists, the striker was rarely given a long run in the team by Jose Mourinho.

In his comments, Lamboley hinted that the player is not enjoying his football under the Portuguese manager:

“Anthony simply wants to play, rediscover the pleasure of football and the rapport with the coach will be crucial.”

Martial moved to Manchester from Monaco in 2015 for a fee rising to £58m. It is believed that United would look to recoup much of what they paid for the France international.

  • Good player Martial but I am afraid that he would be out of our price range in both the fee to get him, and the wages he would want. He would be the ideal additional striker we have needed for the last 2-3 seasons.

  • Agree, good player and a great age for Poch to get hold of him. My guess is Levy has told Utd that Toby is worth £75m for a straight deal but he’s willing to have a different conversation if Martial is part of it. At the moment Utd are playing hard ball and waiting for the different offers for Martial.

    What we need is a couple of other offers for Toby to get things going.

    • When was the last time we brought in anyone decent from the bigger clubs? Ade, Gallas, Corluka and Cudicini are the only names that I remember. Lets face it they were nothing more than squad players for them teams.

      Perhaps we should start doing the same and stop rolling over for these teams.
