Manchester United are set to sell Anthony Martial.
The British ‘Manchester Evening News’ reported on the 6th (Korean time) that “Man United are aiming to sell Martial in the summer as they plan to sign a new striker.”
Martial was seen as Manchester United’s future. Manchester United acquired Martial from AS Monaco in 2015 for £36 million (approximately 57.5 billion won). Martial entered Manchester United as the 10th highest transfer fee, and in the first season of his transfer, he recorded 17 goals and 9 assists in all competitions, drawing attention as a next-generation prospect to lead Manchester United. 토토사이트
But he soon went downhill. Martial was not performing as well as expected. He was criticized by fans for his low activity level and insincere attitude. Despite scoring 17 goals and 7 assists in the league alone in the 2019-20 season, he failed to change the hearts of fans.
His position was further diminished. As Cristiano Ronaldo and Jadon Sancho were recruited, and Anthony Elanga also performed well, his playing time decreased rapidly. In the end, Martial went on a half-season loan to Seville to regain his confidence. However, Martial returned without being able to show a performance to do this in Sevilla.
He was expected once again under coach Eric ten Haag. Because he showed good form in the pre-season. Martial played the game with a positive attitude. Unlike before, he took a vigorous amount of activity and faithfully performed forward pressure. Man Utd fans once again looked forward to it, showing the movement to attack the empty space through constant connection with his colleagues.
However, Martial has been constantly plagued by injuries this season. He suffered a hamstring injury before the season and was absent for a while, and even after his return, there were frequent days when he could not play due to injuries to his back and back. Martial has been sidelined for 20 games this season only due to injury.
Eventually, Manchester United decided to sell. Martial has a contract with Manchester United until the summer of 2024. Therefore, the upcoming summer is the last transfer window to receive a transfer fee. Alternatives are also being discussed. The media said, “Man United are interested in Tottenham Hotspur’s Harry Kane and Napoli’s Victor Osimen.”
