MAR­TIAL WANTS TO LEAVE UNITED AS CON­TRACT TALKS STALL - AGENT

Daily Mirror (Sri Lanka) - - LIFE -

Manch­ester United winger An­thony Mar­tial wants to leave the Premier League club due to a dead­lock in con­tract ne­go­ti­a­tions, ac­cord­ing to his agent Philippe Lam­bo­ley. Mar­tial, 22, has a year left on his cur­rent con­tract but talks of a re­newal re­mained stag­nant over the past few months.

“Af­ter think­ing about all the pos­si­bil­i­ties and sce­nar­ios, An­thony wants to leave Manch­ester United,” Lam­bo­ley told French news out­let RMC Sport. “I think that when Manch­ester United, which is the most pow­er­ful club in the world ... do not find an agree­ment in eight months of ne­go­ti­a­tions, it is be­cause they do not re­ally want to make him an im­por­tant mem­ber of the team.” Lam­bo­ley ad­mit­ted that United will have the fi­nal say in the mat­ter.

”... Im­por­tant to re­mem­ber that he is un­der con­tract, that Manch­ester United will have the last word and that we will re­spect the de­ci­sion of the club.” Mar­tial, who was lim­ited to 18 Premier League starts last sea­son, was not picked for Di­dier Deschamps’s French squad for the World Cup.
