Anthony Martial was brought from AS Monaco as a 19 year old by Louis Van Gaal for what seemed like an exorbitant fee. Reporters ripped him apart even before he kicked a ball for United. However, it took Tony less than 10 minutes to show why he justified the price tag. The young lad was the life and soul of our attack and the only light in a dark season (along with Marcus Rashford). When Jose Mourinho took over, we all expected him to turn Martial into a world beater, the player we all knew he could become. However, Martial found starts hard to come by under the new manager and often found himself on the bench.
So, that’s it for this time. Let us know what you think of the analysis and what you feel about the swap deal. I personally don’t think it will materialize. Ed is a great negotiator and he will never let us get bamboozled by any club. Anyway, that’s all, GGMU!
