Agent admits Martial has options as Spurs, Chelsea to pounce

Independent.ie have been told that Tottenham are eager to sign Martial and with United now struggling to find agreement with Spurs in their efforts to sign Belgian centre-back Toby Alderwiereld, the comments from Lamboley could pave the way for a deal that suits both clubs.

The unequivocal nature of Lamboley's comments suggest there will now be no way back for his client at United and after Mourinho made it clear he will allow star names to leave this summer if they indicate a desire to move on, that path now seems inevitable for Martial.

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

Arsenal target Anthony Martial has told Manchester United that he wants to leave the club this summer, according to his agent. There are lots of factors, and right now it's too early to talk about them. That's why this decision has come - it's a well-thought-out decision.

Juventus have also been touted with interest in the former Monaco striker.

The attacker did not make France's World Cup squad after a disappointing second half to the season at Old Trafford.

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. Today, Anthony is disappointed because he demonstrated for three seasons his love for the club and its supporters.

"After thinking about all the possibilities and scenarios, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United", declared Lamboley.

"But he got hooked and showed great professionalism and was successful".

He scored 17 goals in all competitions in his first season but in the past two years has found his role reduced under Jose Mourinho as players such a Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Romelu Lukaku and Alexis Sanchez joined the squad.

"Everyone will have his opinion, I think he must resume the course of his career".

Asked on RMC is foreign clubs are interested in the forward, his agent added: "Anthony has the choice".
