Philippe Lamboley, Martial's representative, said: "After thinking about all the possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United".

Martial's agent dropped a bombshell on Wednesday night when he confirmed that the 22-year-old was disillusioned with life at Old Trafford and would look to leave the club this summer.

Martial moved to Manchester from Monaco for £36m in September 2015, but has been in and out of the side ever since.

"United wants to extend Anthony and does not want him to leave but we do not find agreement for several months".

While the comments from Martial's agent fall short of an official transfer request, they are a clear indication that the forward who missed out on a place in France's World Cup squad this summer has decided he needs a fresh start in his career. "However, it is important to remember that he is under contract, Man United have the last word and we will respect the club's decision".

Martial is under contract for next season and the United also have the option for the 2019-20 season. It is a well-considered decision.

"However, we do not share the same vision for Anthony's future".

"Anthony is disappointed because he has shown for three seasons he had for the club and its supporters. On top of that, I can tell you that without the fans' unconditional support Anthony would have already asked for a transfer", he added.

"However, Anthony got hooked, he showed great professionalism, he was successful".

"I think he has done his best over the last three years".

'It is important to remember that this season he scored 11 goals and gave ten assists in five months.

"I think that when United, the most powerful club in the world, do not find an agreement after eight months of negotiations then they do not really want to keep such an important player in their squad". He brought Alexis Sanchez in January, limiting Martial's game time even further, infuriating the fans and the player alike. "Anthony just wants to play, to feel happy and connect with his coach, that is essential".
