Photo: Anthony Martial all smiles in training for Manchester United

Anthony Martial has been pictured in good spirits once again during training with Manchester United ahead of the club’s pre-season tour of the United States.

The Frenchman’s agent claimed last month that his client, following a tumultuous second half of the season, wanted to find a new club this summer.

But no such progress towards the exit door appears to have been made, with Martial back at Carrington and set to take part in the club’s pre-season tour, which starts with a game against Club America on July 20.

He appeared to be in a relaxed and jovial mood at the club’s training ground today ahead of flying to Los Angeles on Sunday.

Many didn’t even expect Martial to don the United colours again – even if just on a training ground – towards the end of last season, where it felt as if there was nothing the 22-year-old could do to make Jose Mourinho’s starting XI.

But here he is. Martial will no doubt want regular football next season and will move on if that can’t be achieved at Old Trafford, but for the moment he is taking advantage of the numerous absences due to World Cup commitments to show Mourinho just what he can offer playing down the middle.
