Manchester United fans have been left split on Anthony Martial after the player's agent admitted his client wants to quit Old Trafford.

Understandably there has been plenty of speculation surrounding Martial's future in the media in recent months and it looks like the 22-year-old has now made up his mind to leave United this summer.

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

Lamboley admitted that United will have the final say in the matter. Martial played the full 90 minutes against Brighton & Hove Albion on May 4, but then did not feature against either West Ham United or Watford in the club's last two matches.

Mourinho believes that Martial, who has scored 36 times in 136 games since joining in 2015, can improve, but the player wants more game time. Without the unconditional support of the fans he would have already asked to leave United.

The forward was not included in France's squad for the World Cup having struggled to make much impact at United since Mourinho's arrival.

Despite making a considerable contribution with 11 goals and nine assists in his 45 appearances this season, his role has often been limited to impact substitution, with his rare starts (18) ending prematurely, in favour of Marcus Rashford or Chile superstar Alexis Sanchez.

Invincible CA (SA) put the blame squarely on manager Jose Mourinho for destroying the team bond, claiming he did the same at Chelsea.

The young forward has been linked with a move away from Manchester United in recent months, and was reportedly unhappy that he was not allowed to speak with Arsenal in January.

Well, that's interesting! Martial's intention to leave, while expected, could not have been imagined to be publicly revealed like this.
