French forward Anthony Martial has officially announced his departure from Manchester United, leaving the club as a free agent.

According to Sky Sports, three European clubs are interested in the player. Ligue 1 teams Marseille and Lyon, as well as Turkish Süper Lig side Beşiktaş, are vying for Martial. Additionally, clubs from Mexico, MLS, and Saudi Arabia are monitoring the situation, but Martial himself prefers to stay in Europe.

The Frenchman moved to Manchester United in September 2015 from Monaco, and during that time he played 317 games, in which he scored 90 goals. Coming to the club while still behind Louis van Gaal, Martial has become one of the most important players in the team in the post-Sir Alex Ferguson era.

In the Red Devils' camp, the 28-year-old has won four trophies: the FA Cup, the League Cup, the FA Super Cup and also triumphed with the team in the Europa League in the 2016-2017 season.

In the 2019/2020 season, Martial was voted player of the year by his teammates, and his goal against Liverpool on 12 September 2015 was voted Manchester United's goal of the season. In nine years with the team, he scored 90 goals and made 317 appearances, although it's safe to say that his capabilities have declined.
