Man Utd star Anthony Martial

Man Utd attacker Anthony Martial is keen to secure a move to Juventus during the January transfer window, according to reports.

The 26-year-old has only started four times for Manchester United across all competitions this term.

His only goal of the season came in October as United drew 1-1 against Everton at Old Trafford.

Ralf Rangnick is United’s new interim boss. Martial is yet to feature under the German as he has picked up a knee injury.

The forward’s agent has revealed that he wants to leave United. On Monday, Ralf Rangnick responded to the comments from Martial’s agent:

“I don’t communicate with agents via the media and press,” Rangnick said. “The player hasn’t spoken with me or us about it.

“After the final training session before the Crystal Palace game, after having trained with team, he informed the doctor and the medical department that he would not be available because the pain in his knee is too big. We have to wait and see.

“Maybe he can train again [on Sunday] but I have to speak to the doctor first. To be honest, what his agent says via the media is not of that much interest to me.”

Italian outlet Gazzetta dello Sport (as relayed by the Mirror) are reporting that Martial has “broken up” with Man Utd.

They add that he is hoping to secure a quick exit in January and he has picked out Juventus as his favoured destination.

Speaking earlier this week, Simon Jordan encouraged Rangnick to sell Martial:

“Get the cab ready and put Martial in it as quickly as you possibly can and you’ve got an opportunity,” Jordan said. “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.”
