Anthony Martial’s agent has confirmed that he wants to leave Manchester United in the winter transfer window. Moreover, Barcelona have shown interest in signing the Frenchman. The Catalans want to improve their attacking lineup and are looking to sign players who are currently out of favor from their current club.

Moreover, Juventus have also shown interest in signing the 26-year-old. However, Sevilla have performed better than both the European giants this season. In addition, Martial thinks that he will get more game time at Sevilla than Barcelona and Juventus. Both Barcelona and Juventus have a very good amount of forwards but are underperforming this season and Martial will have to fight for his place at both clubs.

Anthony Martial has played just 200 minutes in the top division and has started just two Premier League games for Manchester United. While the Frenchman has scored just one goal in 359 minutes this season. He has gone out of favor for the managers at Manchester United due to his low work rate.

Anthony Martial had his best season at Manchester United in 2020 scoring 23 goals in that season. However, he has failed to get onto that form in the next seasons. He is likely to leave United in January and a loan move with an option for permanent signing is of high probability.

Why Anthony Martial leaving is the best move for Manchester United?

Anthony Martial has had some very good moments at the club since joining in 2015. However, it is looking like his time has come to start a new chapter somewhere else. He is not as active and cold as he once was and offers very little off the ball. He is also not able to take on defenders as he used to do once and that is a very bad sign for both the club and player. The Frenchman has to take charge of his career and start working hard and make changes to his game to survive.

Manchester United have recently appointed Ralf Rangnick as their interim manager. Therefore, they may look to make some signings in January to help the German manager. However, they will need funds to make some good signings. Moreover, Rangnick wants to get rid of the players who he thinks will not be useful for him. Selling Martial may get a few amount funds for United to make good recruitments in the winter transfer window.

A move away from Old Trafford can also do Anthony Martial a whole lot of good. He can get a fresh start in his career. While he can also thrive under a new manager who includes Martial in his plans. Moreover, the Frenchman has also lost his place in the national team due to a lack of game time. A transfer might also help him in that regard and get his career back on track.
