Anthony Martial’s agent sensationally revealed that his agent wants to leave Manchester United after growing disillusioned with life under Mourinho. Philippe Lamboley, who represents the Frenchman said,” After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United. There are many parameters, for now, it’s premature to talk about it [the reasons for his decision]. Anthony will speak later to discuss all of this.” The agent also confirmed that the club wants to extend Martial’s stay at United and even negotiated over a contract but nothing was agreed upon till date. However, Lamboley had also confirmed in January last year that Martial was on his way to Seville but no move materialized.

Manchester United have reportedly “offered” the services of Marco Veratti by none other than the notorious Mino Raiola.
