The bell tolls for Manchester United's chances of keeping Anthony Martial... but surely paths do not lead to rivals Liverpool?
Despite the obvious rivalry between the two clubs, Liverpool fans are dreaming of a shock switch.
He said: "After looking at all the possibilities and different factors, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United.
"Anthony simply wants to play, enjoy football again. The feeling with the manager will be essential."
Martial scored on his Manchester United debut against Liverpool, but he has failed to hold down a regular starting spot at Old Trafford, particularly after Alexis Sanchez arrived in January from Arsenal.
United would rather sell Martial abroad if they do let him leave at all.
Jose Mourinho has failed to get the best out of him, unlike the way Liverpool boss Jurgen Klopp has been able to maximise the talents of his attacking players.
Liverpool fans concede that the United rivalry prohibits their chance of signing Martial, but believe if a move were to happen, Martial would finally fulfil his huge potential.
Here is a look at how fans reacted to Martial's agent's comments...
Martial wants to leave United.— Anfield Effect (@AnfieldEffect) June 13, 2018
I’d love him at #LFC and he would give Mané some competition. However, he would still cost £40m+.
Martial under Klopp would be a world beater but it’ll never happen unfortunately #LFC— Est. 1892 (@Bobbybloomer) June 13, 2018
Would love Martial at Liverpool— James Currie (@JamesACurrie) June 13, 2018
Martial’s agent confirming he wants to leave United, would never happen but genuinely believe he would become one of the best in the world at Liverpool— Cassius Kirkley (@CassiusK2001) June 13, 2018
I would use the Fekir money and a bit extra to get Martial at Liverpool. Think Klopp would turn him into an absolute monster of an attacker.— Ste O'Reilly (@superdog1984) June 13, 2018
