“After thinking about all the possibilities and scenarios, Anthony wants to leave Manchester United.
“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.”
Interestingly, the UK Sun report further hinted this June, that Old Trafford eggheads are still eager to keep the Frenchman and have placed a stunning £100 million price tag on the forward.
