Manchester United forward Anthony Martial will be leaving the club in the January transfer window.
According to his agent, Philippe Lamboley, the France international has not been a regular at Old Trafford in recent years and he is ready to seek more game time elsewhere.

“He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon”. Philippe Lamboley told Sky Sports.
United signed Martial in 2015 from AS Monaco in a £36m deal including add ons that will rise to £56m.
The forward who just turned 26 this December had a blistering start having scored in his debut against United’s long-time rival Liverpool.
He has now seen his place go further down the pecking order with his most recent hit being the addition of Cristiano Ronaldo who has been partnering with Edinson Cavani, Marcus Rashford, Jadon Sancho, or Mason Greenwood in the attack, leaving Martial in the dark.
With United seeking more addition to the side in January after new boss Ralf Rangnick was given £100m to spend during the January transfer window, the Frenchman may well be surplus to requirement at his current club.
