Rangnick Gives Update on Martial's Transfer away from Manchester United | Read
Manchester United's interim manager, Ralf Rangnick, has given an update as it concerns the future of Anthony Martial.
Martial's agent had earlier given a hint early in December that the player wants to leave Old Trafford during the January transfer window. According to reports from Daily Mirror, Rangnick said the striker has told him he wants to leave the club.
We spoke on Wednesday. we spoke at length. He explained to me he has been at United for seven years and he feels it is the right time for a change to go somewhere else. In a way this is understandable. I could follow his thoughts, but on the other hand. It is important to see the situation of the club. We have COVID times; we have three competitions in which we still have high ambitions. I told him as long as there is no club showing interest in him, and it should not only be in the interest of the player, it should also be in the interest of the club. So far, there has been no offer and as long as this is the case, he will stay.
The 26-year-old has fallen down the pecking order at Manchester United this season under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and Ralf Rangnick. He has scored just one Premier League goal in seven appearances this season.
