Anthony Martial’s agent has poured scorn on speculation linking the Manchester United forward with an exit this summer.

Signed from Monaco for £36m in 2015, Martial kicked his United career off with a scintillating first campaign at Old Trafford, scoring 17 goals in his debut season.

But a testing second term, which yielded just eight goals and public criticism from manager Jose Mourinho, has seen question marks rise over his future.

Paris Saint-Germain have long been linked with the France international, while West Ham emerged as surprise suitors for the 21-year-old.

However, Martial’s agent, Philippe Lamboley, is adamant his client has no intention of leaving United.

Speaking to Journal du Dimanche, he said: “Martial has two years left and there is no reason for him to leave Manchester today.

“If [executive vice-chairman] Ed Woodward tells me they want him to leave, things are different.

“But that is not what he told me during our last meeting.”

Marcus Rashford’s re-emergence reduced Martial’s first-team opportunities last season and prompted Mourinho to demand more from the Frenchman.

“Is Anthony Martial a player with great potential? Yes,” the United boss said.

“Can he play successfully for me? Yes. But he needs to give me things that I like very much.”

And Martial clearly took the advice on board, ending a testing campaign strongly as he raked up 25 Premier League appearances and starred in United’s EFL Cup and Europa League triumphs.
