Martial, the incredible turnaround

Author of a very good pre-season with Man Utd, Anthony Martial no longer seems to be heading for a departure, but the case of Cristiano Ronaldo could pose a problem.

Sometimes it only takes a few things to completely change the situation and status of a player within a club, such as a few convincing warm-up matches for example. This is the case ofAnthony Martial at Manchester United. After a disappointing season during which he was even loaned, without success, to Seville, the future of the French international (30 caps, 2 goals) seemed to be written far from the North of England. But after the first training sessions under the aegis of Erik Ten Hag and three preparation matches, the situation changed.

3 goals in 3 matches

This Friday, The Athletic reveals that the former Monegasque would be on track to stay on the side of Old Trafford. According to the English media, Martial would have impressed his new coach in training, where he would have perfectly responded to the demands of the game system put in place by the Dutchman. And after three friendlies, the 26-year-old has regained an efficiency that had been fleeing him for a long time with 3 goals in as many matches, and an assist.

An offensive quartet that is emerging

And if we could see enormous progress in the game proposed by the Red Devils against Liverpool (4-0) then Crystal Palace (4-1), the native of Massy is no stranger to it. Aligned at the forefront of the attack, he has already displayed a great bond with Bruno Fernandes, Marcus Rashford et Jadon Sancho who also find their colors during this pre-season.

The Ronaldo problem

There is all the same a slight problem to solve: the presence or not of Cristiano Ronaldo in Ten Hag’s squad next season. If the Mancunian coach wants to keep him and integrate him into his system, the five-time Ballon d’Or and his agent Jorge Mendes are looking for a way out and above all a club where he can play in the Champions League next season, which cannot offer him Manchester. If he were to stay, Martial’s playing time could once again be significantly reduced.
