And his agent Philippe Lamboley has told RMC that they have taken the decision to move on.
He said: “After thinking about all the possibilities and scenarios, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United.
“There are many parameters, for now it’s premature to talk about it. Anthony will speak later to discuss all of this.
“Manchester United want to extend Anthony’s contract and do not want him to leave but we haven’t found an agreement despite several months of negotiations.

“I think that when Manchester United, which is the most powerful club in the world it must be remembered, do not find an agreement in eight months of negotiations, it is because they do really want to make him an important player.
“That’s why this decision comes in. It is a well considered decision.
“However, it is quite obvious and it is very important to remember that he is under contract.
“Manchester United will have the last word and that we will respect the decision of the club, he will go to the end of its commitment.”
