Man Utd transfer news LIVE: Martial asks to LEAVE, Erling Haaland, Cristiano Ronaldo and Florian Wirtz latest

MANCHESTER UNITED have been dealt a blow after Anthony Martial demanded to leave the club.

The Frenchman has not been a regular this year and boss Ralf Rangnick confirmed he is now looking for a change of scenery.

But Rangnick added that no bid has come in for the Monaco star and therefore it is likely he will have to stay at Old Trafford.

The German stated: "“Yes we spoke on Wednesday. We spoke at length.

"He explained to me he’s been at Manchester United now for seven years and he feels it’s the right time for a change, to go somewhere else.

“In a way this is understandable, I could follow his thoughts but on the other hand, it’s also important to see the situation of the club.

“We have Covid times, we have three competitions in which we still have high ambitions.

“I told him as long as there is no club showing interest in him, and it should not only be in the interest of the player it should also be in the interest of the club.

“So far, as far as I know, there has been no offer from any other club and as long as this is the case he will stay.”

    All that is needed is for United to give the green light for the former PSG striker to be allowed to join.

    If United don't sell, they could be forced to losing Cavani on a free transfer at the end of the current campaign anyway.

    According to Sport, Red Devils officials are considering terminating his current deal to allow him to link up with the LaLiga club.

    Cavani has struggled at Old Trafford this season, as injuries have taken their toll and restricted him to just eight games in all competitions.
