The arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January has narrowed down his playing time even more. Anthony Martial is currently behind Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford in the pecking order at the club. But despite his intentions to leave Old Trafford, Manchester United are not keen to let him go.

He is currently into the final year of his four-year contract that he signed upon his arrival in 2015. But the club does have the option to extend his contract by another year. It would effectively keep the player at the club till 2020.

Since the arrival of Sanchez, the new contract offer talks were put on a halt, and the future of Martial remained uncertain over the past few months. Even his agent, Philippe Lamboley has revealed the Frenchman is ready to leave Old Trafford to revive his career earlier in June.

“After thinking about all the factors and possibilities, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United,” he told RMC Sport. “Everyone will have their opinion but I think he needs to resume his career. The time has come.”
