However, despite being one of the club’s longest-serving players, the 26-year-old has always struggled for consistency with his best season, which saw him score 17 league goals, under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer in the 2019-20 season.
Although it was previously speculated that he would be up for sale this transfer window following his move on loan last season, Tin Hag seems to be thinking a lot about the Frenchman’s ideas.
During the Red Devils’ pre-season tour, Martial was a standout player, scoring three goals in several appearances.
What this latest news might mean for fellow teammate and spoiled star Cristiano Ronaldo remains unclear, however, one thing is certain, with Martial delivering some impressive early levels, United loyalists hope the ex-Monaco striker can finally be able to advance. Until the dish and serve next season.
