Ray Parlour believes the time has come for Manchester United to cash in on ‘disinterested’ Anthony Martial.
The former Arsenal midfielder insists it ‘just hasn’t worked for him as a striker’ during his time at Old Trafford and United chiefs should be looking to replace him in the summer.
He thinks another forward is more deserving of the opportunity to represent the Red Devils, with Martial not pulling his weight.
And he suspects United chiefs will be asking: ‘How much money can we get for him?’
‘Sometimes he looks disinterested with football in general,’ Parlour told TalkSport.
‘When he comes on the pitch you should be raring to go, trying to make an impact if you’re coming off the bench.
‘I don’t know if he’s the sort of player when he’s left out his confidence levels go really down, I don’t see him on a day-to-day basis.
‘But it just hasn’t worked for him as a striker for Manchester United.
‘Consistency is so important in football. If you’re going to be at the top of your game, you’ve got to make sure you’re consistent week in week out, put in performances week in week out.
‘He doesn’t do that, for me. He can have a 9 out of 10 and then suddenly he’s got two 4 out of 10s.
‘You aren’t going to win anything with a player like that in your team.
‘So Manchester United, as much as Man City need a striker in the summer, they’ll be looking probably to say, Okay, how much money can we get for him?
‘How can we move him on? Let’s bring someone else in and give them the opportunity to play for Manchester United.’
