Anthony Martial has revealed he did not hesitate at all when Philippe Lamboley told him Manchester Untied wanted to sign him.
The 20-year-old has been irreplaceable at Old Trafford since his £36million summer transfer from AS Monaco and has quickly become one of Man United’s most influential players.
Speaking in an extended interview for the first time since joining, Martial told ManUtd.com he knows he made the right decision in joining one of the biggest clubs in the world.
He said: “When my agent told me that United want to sign me I did not hesitate for one second. It’s one of the biggest clubs in the world.”
“Now I’m actually here, I can totally appreciate that it’s one of the biggest, and probably the biggest club in the world.”
Good lad Martial, that’s what you want to hear as a fan. Unfortunately for him, United are no longer the best club in the world and we’ve got some real catching up to do if we’re to get back to our best.
Luckily, we’ve got Martial. He’s a player who we can build our future around because he’s that good. We haven’t seen somebody that exciting, and consistent, on the wing since Cristiano Ronaldo left for Real Madrid.
Whatever happens for United this season, the arrival of Martial is a silver lining and if he continues to grow at the same rate he has done over the last six months, it won’t be long before he is considered one of the best in the world.
