Before United's 3-2 win over Premier League champions-elect Manchester City in April, Charlotte Duncker of the Manchester Evening News reported Mourinho sent a message to Martial by dropping him for a league encounter with Swansea City.

"After considering all possibilities and options, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United", Lamboley explained to RMC Sport.

"There are many reasons, for now it is too early to discuss it. Anthony will talk soon to go through that".

Philippe Lamboley claims United want to extend Martial's deal and do not want the Frenchman to leave.

"Anthony has the choice, I can not say anything on the subject at the moment but you think that from the moment a player like Anthony is on the market a lot of clubs are interested".

While the comments from Martial's agent fall short of an official transfer request, they are a clear indication that the forward who missed out on a place in France's World Cup squad this summer has decided he needs a fresh start in his career. This is why the decision has come.

Martial joined United as a teenager who, at the time, was touted as a potential future Ballon d'Or victor. "However, it is important to remember that he is under contract, Man United have the last word and we will respect the club's decision".

Martial's contract expires at the end of next season so if he is dead-set on going elsewhere in the current transfer window, United will be very keen to sell in order to prevent the risk of their £36m signing leaving for nothing.

When given the opportunity, Martial has shown on several occasions that he's capable of feats of brilliance but he's had to settle for a bit-part role at Old Trafford in recent seasons and the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez did nothing to remedy that problem.

Later the same month, Mourinho pointedly avoided answering a direct question about Martial's and Marcus Rashford's playing time, per Mike Whalley of the Telegraph.

"Anthony is disappointed because he has shown for three seasons he had for the club and its supporters". I can tell you that without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would have already asked to leave United.
