With his stock on a rapid rise, Man United striker Anthony Martial has become an important target for major European football powers even after less than one full season in the Premier League. However, the Red Devils can probably breathe a sigh of relief knowing that the French starlet is more committed to helping the club return to the top of the table than chasing the almighty dollar.
According to Sky Sports, Martial responded to recent transfer rumours connecting him to PSG and Juventus by brushing it aside and essentially committing to the club by stating his intention to help the club improve next season.
“They [Manchester United] are not at the top at the moment, but I hope that next year they will be,” Martial said.
Martial was acquired from Monaco for a world-record transfer fee at the end of the summer transfer window. He quickly justified the hefty fee with a debut goal against Liverpool. To date, he is the second-leading scorer on the team with 12 goals in all competitions.
PSG and Juventus are both expected to be in the market for a new striker this summer with Zlatan and Alvaro Morata expected to depart respectively.
