Anthony Martial wanted Arsenal move in January

Martial keen on Manchester United exit?

Anthony Martial will reportedly seek a fresh challenge away from Manchester United during the summer after not being allowed to discuss a winter switch to Arsenal.

The 22-year-old has failed to make a single Premier League start since February and reports suggest that he could push through an exit in the off-season.

According to The Times, the Frenchman was keen on discussing a move to the Emirates Stadium in exchange for Alexis Sanchez, and his failure to do so appears to have unsettled him.

Martial is currently the third-choice forward on the left-wing behind Sanchez and Marcus Rashford, and his representative is understood to have already begun talks with Juventus.

Aside from the Old Lady, the Frenchman is also attracting interest from the likes of Paris Saint-Germain and Tottenham Hotspur with his current contract due to expire in the summer of 2019.

Martial has contributed 11 goals and 10 assists for Manchester United across all competitions this season. This happens to be his best season with the Red Devils to date despite being in-and-out of the starting lineup.
