Anthony Martial’s agent has refused to rule out the Arsenal target leaving Manchester United this summer.

The France international has struggled to establish himself as a first-team regular under Jose Mourinho despite a brilliant start to his Old Trafford career.

Martial scored 18 times in 49 games in all competitions during his first season at Old Trafford but the French forward couldn’t prevent Louis van Gaal from losing his job.

The 22-year-old has been regularly criticised by Mourinho for his lacklustre performances to cast doubt on Martial’s long-term future at Manchester United.

The former Moanco starlet appeared to have turned a corner in recent months after he scored three goals and made two assists in the opening 20 days of January.

However, Martial has fallen out of favour under Mourinho again to raise questions about his future at the Manchester outfit.

Arsenal have been linked with a potential swoop to sign Martial after Alexis Sanchez completed a move to Old Trafford in the January transfer window.

Martial’s agent Philippe Lamboley has refused to commit the France international’s future to Manchester United.

“Will [Martial] stay in Manchester in the summer? At the moment, I cannot say anything else about it,” Lamoboley told Il Bianconero, as quoted by The Sun.

“His goal is to win the FA Cup and to cement with Manchester United the second place in the Premier League.”

Martial has netted 36 times in 131 games in all competitions during a two and a half season stay at Old Trafford.
