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.

Phlippe Lamboley, the agent of Anthony Martial, has confirmed that the forward wishes to leave Manchester United this summer.

"After thinking about all the possibilities and settings, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United", said agent Philippe Lamboley, speaking to RMC Sport in France.

"There are many reasons, for now it is too early to discuss it. Anthony will talk soon to go through that".

"I think when the most powerful club in the world does not find an agreement in eight months of negotiations, it is that it really does not want to make an important player a part of its workforce". This is why the decision has come.

Martial joined United in 2015 when he signed as a relative unknown from Monaco for an initial £36m fee. "However, it is important to remember that he is under contract, Man United have the last word and we will respect the club's decision".

Martial is under contract for next season and the United also have the option for the 2019-20 season.

"Anthony is disappointed because he has shown his love for the club and the supporters for three seasons. Besides, I can tell you that without the unconditional support of the fans, Anthony would have already asked to leave United".

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

Mourinho has lost faith in Martial despite a good first half of the season, with his game time significantly limited after the January arrival of Alexis Sanchez. Everyone will have their opinion, I think we need to resume his career.

Martial has been linked with a move away from United this summer, with reports claiming that Juventus, Barcelona, Chelsea and Arsenal are all interested in signing the Frenchman.
