Soon after Anthony Martial's agent Philippe Lamboley went public stating the Frenchman's desire to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window, the club's on-loan Brazilian Andreas Pereira has become the latest player to publicly announce his desire to leave the Old Trafford based club.
United's manager Ralf Rangnick has begun a new era at the club and the initial results are looking positive with the club winning two and drawing one of their three games under the German coach's leadership.
In his initial press conference, Rangnick said that every player will have a chance to impress and reignite their career, but earlier this week, Martial's agent stated his client wanted to leave Manchester United.
“Anthony wishes to leave the club in January,” Philippe Lamboley told Sky Sports News. “He just needs to play. He doesn’t want to stay in January and I will speak to the club soon.”
After Martial, Andreas Pereira became the latest player to send the departure wish to Manchester United as he wants to continue staying with Flamengo.
Pereira has five league goals in 18 games so far this season.
"My desire has always been to stay here at Flamengo, and now we are going to do everything,” Pereira told ESPN via Metro.
“We are going to talk to President Landim and Marcos Braz to make this possible. Of course, I have a feeling that I owe the fans a title.
“As I told them, you can count on me, I’ll do my best so that next year we can come out with those titles there.”
Rangnick himself accepted that he has inherited a big squad and he would be open to sending players on loan if they want continued game-time.
“It’s still too early to talk about what might happen in the winter transfer window [but] if I look at the number of players we have it’s still a big squad,” he explained.
“We also need to make sure that players want to stay here. If they are still not getting enough game time here it might make sense to speak individually with the players and see if a loan might make sense.”
