Anthony Martial wants to leave Manchester United, according to his agent. 

The 22-year-old has fallen out of favour in his two seasons under Jose Mourinho, starting less than half of United's Premier League fixtures during that period.

Martial arrived at the club from Monaco in 2015 for an initial fee reported to be £36 million, and enjoyed a strong debut campaign under Louis van Gaal, netting 11 league goals in 31 appearances - only two of which came from the bench.

Speculation has continued to mount regarding Martial's future and the forward's agent, Philippe Lamboley, says his client wishes to move on, with a year still left to run on his deal at Old Trafford.

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

Lamboley suggested lengthy contract talks were not making Martial feel wanted by United, while the agent also suggested the club's business in January, when Alexis Sanchez was brought in, have also affected the player's decision.
