Man Utd striker Anthony Martial watches on

Anthony Martial is ready to ‘do everything’ in his power to force a move away from Man Utd in the January transfer window, according to reports.

The Frenchman was impressive during the 2019/20 season at Old Trafford, contributing 17 goals and six assists in the Premier League but it has gone downhill from there for the 26-year-old.

Injury and poor form saw Martial score just four goals last campaign, while he has bagged just one in seven appearances this term for the Red Devils.

Martial has been linked with moves to Newcastle United, Barcelona, Lyon and Paris Saint-Germain in recent weeks with Man Utd now reportedly willing to let him go for the right price.

Italian publication Gazzetta dello Sport (via Sport Witness) claims that Martial is ‘tired of waiting’ for his opportunity at Man Utd and ‘has decided to change’.

Martial’s agent recently said that he “wishes to leave the club in January” and the report from Italy adds that Martial ‘will do everything’ to leave Old Trafford with Juventus waiting in the wings.

Man Utd have ‘no intention’ of selling the former Monaco striker and Gazzetta insist a loan move in January would be ‘the simplest solution’.

Juventus ‘may be the first choice’ for Martial but, despite Fiorentina striker Dusan Vlahovic proving to be too expensive, the Man Utd striker is not ‘first choice’ for the Old Lady.

Meanwhile, former Crystal Palace chairman Simon Jordan thinks Man Utd should take the “opportunity” to get Martial out the door at Old Trafford as quickly as possible.

“Get the cab ready and put Martial in it as quickly as you possibly can and you’ve got an opportunity,” Jordan said on talkSPORT earlier this week. “Because I think Martial is one of those players that gets you the sack.

“I think he is the archetypal Manchester United player of the last half a decade that, on paper, looks a great player, got all the ability, but when it comes to it has the heart the size of a pea.

“He wants to go, so good riddance if I’m United.”
