Manchester United took a real big-money risk last summer, when Louis van Gaal decided to splash the cash and bring in the little-known Anthony Martial. The forward cost a huge £38million, but now that seems like a bit of a bargain.
Today EA Sports released the first few bits of information about their new game for 2017, and it features a certain Anthony Martial on the rumoured cover.
What a meteoric rise Anthony Martial has undergone over the last twelve months. He has already established himself as one of the best in the world in such a short space of time, and it seems he is a very marketable character off the field, too.
Check out the rumoured cover here:
Jose Mourinho will obviously have huge plans for next season, and Anthony Martial will without doubt be one of those key figures. It remains to be seen as to whether the self-proclaimed Special One will deploy him as a winger or a striker though, but we’ll find out soon enough.
