Manchester United forward Anthony Martial is looking for a way to bring an end to his frustrating Old Trafford spell and has told the club he wants to leave in the January transfer window.

The Frenchman has been frozen out at United this season, making just two starts in 15 Premier League games this season, coming off the bench in five.

The 26-year-old has only played 67 minutes of United’s Champions League campaign, with his sole start in the competition coming in their away win against Villareal.

The striker is reportedly unhappy with the amount of playing time he has received amid fierce attacking competition and is considering other options ahead of the transfer window opening on January 1.

Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley told Sky Sports News: ‘Anthony wishes to leave the club in January.

‘He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.’

Martial faces an uncertain future following the arrival of interim manager Ralf Rangnick.

He missed the boss’s first two games in charge due to a knee injury but it is unlikely his current outcast status will change under the 63-year-old.
