Martial asks to leave, fed up of Mourinho and Man Utd

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

"There are a lot reason, for the moment it is too early to talk about it. Anthony will speak later on to talk about that", he added. He started the season impressively but paid the price for poor post-January form by missing out on France's World Cup squad.

And while Martial's agent Philippe Lamboley assures that United are keen to keep him at the club, he feels the time is right for a change.

"If Manchester United, the most powerful club in the world, can't reach an agreement after eight months of negotiations, it means they don't really consider him to be an important player", continued Lamboley.

Now his agent has confirmed that Martial wants to leave Old Trafford, words which will be music to the ears of several Serie A clubs who are firm fans of the Frenchman. I can tell you that without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would have already asked to leave United.

FG declares Friday, Monday, public holidays for Eid -El Fitr
The ministry has approved the holidays from June 15 to June 18, a notification regarding which has been released on Friday. Saudi Arabia's King Salman also issued a directive last Tuesday to extend this year's Eid Al Fitr holiday.

Arsenal have been linked with Martial previously when Alexis Sanchez made the swap from London to Manchester in January, but United instead orchestrated a swap-style deal for Henrikh Mkhitaryan to secure the Chile global. The French global showed some great form during the first half of last season with 11 goals and 10 assists to his name by the end of December but he fell badly out of favour under Jose Mourinho following the turn of the year.

'However we do not have the same vision on Anthony's future. It is important to remember that this season he scored 11 goals and gave 10 assists in five months.

"But he got hooked and showed great professionalism and was successful". He brought Alexis Sanchez in January, limiting Martial's game time even further, infuriating the fans and the player alike. Everyone will have their opinion, I think we need to resume his career.

While the agent was reluctant to discuss the motivation behind Martial's transfer request, he did hint at frustration at a lack of playing time.

"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. Anthony just wants to play, find pleasure, feeling with the coach will be essential".
