Former Manchester United striker Dimitar Berbatov has urged Anthony Martial to discuss his future at the club with interim manager, Ralf Rangnick.

The Bulgarian, who won two Premier League titles at Old Trafford, was speaking to Betfair in light of Martial’s agent publically stating his client wanted to leave and did not blame the player for his reported stance.

The 26-year-old has only been afforded two Premier League starts this season and has fallen behind the likes of Cristiano Ronaldo, Jadon Sancho, Edinson Cavani and Marcus Rashford in the United pecking order.

One major issue, however, is that the French international is still under contract until the summer of 2024.

With Covid still running rampant across the game, the idea of shifting such a big contract during what is already a notoriously difficult transfer window is surely somewhat farfetched.

“I’m not surprised that Anthony Martial wants to leave Manchester United,” said Berbatov.

“ He is fit and ready to go but he isn’t playing games. Martial is a good player and other clubs will want him.

“I’d encourage Martial to go to Ralf Rangnick’s office and tell him about his pain and say what he wants. Martial should have an honest conversation with Rangnick, because that way the player will know exactly where he stands in the team and if he doesn’t like what he hears then he should ask to leave.”
