'Man Utd Star Wants To Leave Old Trafford'

A Manchester United star, who has often been criticised by Jose Mourinho, wants to leave Old Trafford, according to his agent.

Click through the gallery above to see five players who could leave United in this transfer window.

France international Anthony Martial has fallen somewhat out of favour at the Premier League giants, having started less than half of the team's league games in the past two seasons.

The Frenchman, who saw his form dip last season, missed out on a place in his country's 2018 FIFA World Cup squad as a result, and his agent, Philippe Lamboley, has now claimed his client, who has a year left on his current deal, wishes to move on.

"After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United," Lamboley told RMC Sport.

"For now, it is premature to talk about (why). Anthony will speak later to discuss all of this.

"United wants to extend Anthony's deal and does not want him to leave, but we do not find an agreement for several months. I think that when Manchester United – which is the most powerful club in the world, it must be remembered – does not find an agreement in eight months of negotiations, it is that it does not really want to make him an important player in its squad.

"It is a well-considered decision. 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, he will go to the end of his commitment (if required).

"However, we do not have the same vision on Anthony's future. Today, Anthony is disappointed because he has shown for three seasons the love he had for the club and his supporters. Besides, I can tell you that, without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would have already asked to leave United.

"However, Anthony got hooked, he showed great professionalism, he was successful. I think he has done his best for three years. It is important to remember that this season he scored 11 goals and gave 10 assists in five months. He was elected three times player of the month by the fans.

"Then arrived the transfer window of January. I will not comment on the consequences of this transfer window. Everyone will have his opinion, I think he must resume the course of his career. The time has come."
