His woes at Manchester United cost him a place in the World Cup squad for France this summer, who are heading to Russian Federation looking to take back football's most coveted trophy.

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

"The only thing I can say is that many coaches appreciate his profile and that many clubs want to show their projects to Anthony".

Martial, 22, scored 11 goals in 45 appearances last season, but saw his opportunities limited by the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

"Manchester United wants to extend Anthony's contract and does not want him to leave but we have not found an agreement for several months".

Lamboley went on to explain that contract negotiations had been going on for eight months but no agreement could be reached, which the agent deduced that if they could "not find an agreement in eight months of negotiations, it is that it does not really want to make [Martial] an important player in its workforce".


"Anthony is disappointed because he has shown his love for the club and the supporters for three seasons".

"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.

Martial has been linked with a move away from United this summer, with reports claiming that Juventus, Barcelona, Chelsea and Arsenal are all interested in signing the Frenchman. Without the unconditional support of the fans he would have already asked to leave United. He was chosen Player of the Month three times by fans.

Martial joined United as a teenager who, at the time, was touted as a potential future Ballon d'Or victor.

"Everyone will have his opinion, I think he must resume the course of his career".

Pushed on which leagues Martial would be willing to play in, Lamboley said: "Today, this is not the most important question. Anthony just wants to play, to feel happy and connect with his coach, that is essential".
