French footballer Anthony Martial told Rangnick that he wants to leave Man Utd, but offers for the forward have not yet been received.


What did Rangnick say about Anthony Martial?

Anthony Martial wants a January release to secure more play time and while Ralf Rangnick understands why his player wants to leave, it is not confirmed that he will get his wish. Sevilla is one of a number of clubs believed to be interested in the Frenchman, but Man Utd has not yet received any applications for a player.

Anthony Martial’s agent, Lamboley, said in an interview a couple of weeks ago that his client wants to leave. In time, the boss has now confirmed the spokesman’s information, with the Frenchman going up to Ralf to explain his intentions. Ralf Rangnick said that – they talked for a long time. Anthony Martial explained to him that he has been at Man Utd for the last seven years, and he believes it is time for a change, to move elsewhere.

Ralf thinks, in a way, this is understandable. Rangnick could follow his thoughts, but on the other hand it is also important to see the club’s situation. They have some rough times, they have three competitions in which they still have high ambitions and want to be as successful as possible. According to Rangnick, any movement should not only be in the interests of the player, but also in the interests of the club. So far, as far as Ralf knows, there have been no offers from any other club and as long as this is the case, Anthony Martial will remain.


A little about Anthony Martial

Anthony has made just 10 appearances in all competitions this season and only started twice in the league. Ronaldo’s arrival pushed him further down the pecking order at Old Trafford and with Anthony scoring just one goal this season, he is very unlikely to push Portugal International out of the XI starting. Martial had his best season at Man Utd in 2019-20 where he scored 23 goals in all competitions but struggled for consistency over six and a half years at the club.
