Manchester United superstar makes dramatic U-turn on Old Trafford future: report

The summer was filled with rumours suggesting that Anthony Martial would exit Manchester United this summer; following the Frenchman’s decision to hand in a transfer request.

No move away happened. Now, it looks as though the 22-year-old has had a change of heart… That’s according to The Sun in an exclusive, who says that Martial wants to stay at Old Trafford, and fight for his place.

Whether this is due to the fact that a move now looks unlikely remains to be seen. Let’s be honest, if he didn’t come out and leak this news, the chances are that he’d be bench-warming for the season’s majority. At least now, he has a chance to play.

The only issue is that the situation remains the same. Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford both play in the same position. He’ll still have to share the game-time with those two, no matter what he says.

Fair play to United for standing firm on the situation. They’ve not caved into his demands, and why should they? At this point, they hold all the cards. Things may be different next summer, though, as Martial’s contract begins to wind down…

It’s certainly going to be an intriguing season where Martial is concerned. If he does well and plays regularly, there may well be hope yet…
