Anthony Martial has been trending worldwide overnight as Manchester United fans have taken to Twitter to react to a rumour that claims the player is frustrated that his no.9 squad number was taken off him without him being informed.
Manchester United gave Zlatan Ibrahimovic the #9 shirt without informing Anthony Martial that they were taking it away from him ! ??

Martial fuelled the mayhem by changing his Facebook display photos to pictures prominently featuring the number nine.
And now the social-media-savvy striker has used Instagram to prolong the digging, it seems.
Unconfirmed rumours on Reddit claim that Martial ‘unfollowed’ United’s official Insta account.
However, another move on Instagram is what got our attention.
Martial shared a photo of himself on a boat, with the caption: “Captain Martial”, followed by a laughing emoji.
Is Martial joking about his position at Old Trafford? Or is this unrelated boat bantz?
