What if Anthony Martial continued his career at Manchester United? The English press does not exclude this scenario for the French striker.
An XXL salary that is cooling
Promoted to new Manchester United coach to replace the German Ralf Rangnick, Erik ten Hag does not count on Anthony Martial. Returning to the Red Devils squad after a sad six-month loan to Sevilla FC (1 goal in 12 games), the French striker is invited to find a new club. Will the former AS Monaco player find his happiness? Nothing is less certain if we are to believe the latest information from the English media. Said it Manchester Evening News and the DailyMailthe Mancunian club would be more and more convinced by the fact that the native of Massy remains on the side of Old Trafford.
79 goals in 269 games
The reason ? The 26-year-old goleador would not be overwhelmed by proposals during this transfer market. The suitors of the international tricolor would have been cooled by his substantial salary. Under contract until June 2024 with Manchester United, Anthony Martial earns 240,000 pounds per week, or 280,000 euros weekly, emoluments far too high for a player lost sight of for months. For its part, The Sun indicates that Manchester United would not hesitate to sell him off by claiming “only” 20 million pounds (23 million euros), barely more than his market value which is established for Transfermarkt to 16 million euros.
If the trend is confirmed in the coming weeks, the Dutch technician will have to reluctantly keep the man with 30 caps and 2 goals with the Blues, without guaranteeing him playing time. As a reminder, the Mancunian staff had attracted Anthony Martial for 60 million euros during the summer of 2015. In 269 matches in all competitions, the former resident of the French championship scored 79 goals and delivered 50 assists, including 56 goals and 31 assists in 175 matches of the Premier League.
