The agent of French striker Anthony Martial said that the latter wants to leave Manchester United during the winter transfer window next month, because he does not have enough time on the field.
The 26-year-old, who moved to United in 2015 from Monaco, has started only two matches this season, a key player in the Premier League and has scored an orphan goal so far.
The news channel, “Sky Sports News” agent Marcial, Philip Empoli, was quoted as saying, “Anthony to leave the club in January wants. All you are looking for is to play. Do not want to stay in January and I will talk soon with the club.”
Martial’s contract with the “Red Devils” extends for at least three additional years, after he renewed his association with the club in 2019 in a deal that included the option to extend it for another year.
The Frenchman’s ranking in United declined in terms of hierarchy in the front line of the team with the return to the club, Portuguese star Cristiano Ronaldo, newcomer Jadon Sancho, Uruguayan Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford and Mason Greenwood.
Although he did not mention specifically the name Marcial, but the new coach Ralf United Rangenak hinted at the possibility of the departure of some players for the team during the winter transfer window next month, when asked about the large number of players currently in the team.
He said: “It’s still a great team (in terms of the number of players). You have to make sure that the players (who are there) want to stay here. If they see that they don’t have enough time here (on the field), it would make sense to talk to the players individually and see if The loan deal made sense, but it’s too early now (to talk about that).”
