Despite the slow start from Anthony Martial to make a name for himself, he is desperate to stay at Manchester United but living up to the massive fee paid by Louis van Gaal has been really hard for the Frenchmen.
To make the situation worse, this season Martial has only played 11 matches, that’s a big drop considering last year’s 29. And he dramatic arrival of Zlatan Ibrahimovic has forced him to the bench.
Also being used sparingly this term has ignited transfer rumours that French giants PSG and Spanish team Sevilla are interested in the 21-year-old forward.
But amid all this speculation, Martial remains adamant that he would like to stay. He even credits the supporters for his desire to stay and keep fighting for a place in the starting eleven.
“For me, what’s really special here is the supporters. They’ve been really outstanding with me,” Martial told Inside Manchester United magazine.
“I think that’s what goes a long way to making me feel at home and at ease, and makes me really keen to stay here at the club.” He said during an interview with Inside United magazine.
The Frenchman is used the international break and his absence from the France team to get on a trip to Dubai.
The Red Devil’s star was overlooked for the France squad by Didier Deschamps and didn’t even selected for their Under 21s either. It meant he was free to take some leisure time and opted for a holiday destination much-loved by footballers, Dubai.
While The Frenchman has struggled to live up to the expectations, he has shown glimpses of being a future star. He along with Marcus Rashford and Jesse Lingard are still tipped to be the future of Manchester United. So United fans will desperately hope that Martial can turn it around and live up to the fee paid by United.
Manchester United returns after the International break to face West Bromwich Albion on April 1st.
