Manchester United fans were thrilled with Anthony Martial‘s impressive performance against Real Madrid on Sunday night.
The Frenchman had been linked with an Old Trafford exit this summer with Inter Milan, Wolfsburg and Paris Saint-Germain interested in acquiring his services, however, Man United were unwilling to negotiate a deal.
He has once again showcased why he is rated so highly and although he’s suffered dips in form, Martial created a moment of absolute magic, dribbling through Real’s defence and putting the ball on a plate for Jesse Lingard to find the side’s opening goal of the game.
Here’s what supporters on social media had to say about his performance.
Anthony Martial just spun the best right-back in Europe, what a player we've on our hands.

Martial keeps showing us his potential & moments of magic. Fantastic 1st season, disappointing 2nd. Hope this season will be a special one.

Really hope Martial becomes a key player for Mourinho this season. Still an absolutely brilliant talent

Anthony Martial is a baller. Such immaculate control when waltzing past defenders for fun. Big season to come.

It's moments like that from Martial that make you so reluctant to give up on him. Has ridiculous talent

Anthony Martial just destroyed the entire Real Madrid defence & left the goal on a platter for Jesse Lingard. WHAT A WASTE OF MONEEEEEEEY!

He was absolutely specular against Real and hopes are he’s able to keep his form consistent as he had struggled to keep his place in the side last campaign following a sensational debut season at Old Trafford.
Martial has all the attributes to become a top player at United and the 21-year-old has plenty of time ahead to enhance his game and live up to the expectations at United as he’ll look to continue setting the bar higher during his time at the club.
