Man United super-starlet pledges to be even better next year

After a breakout season at Manchester United following a world-record transfer from Monaco, striker Anthony Martial believes that his best is yet to come.

‘I think it’s gone OK,’ Martial told the Daily Telegraph ahead of the FA Cup Final against Crystal Palace.

‘But I’m hoping to have a better season next time around. I still feel deep down I could have done better.’

Martial finished the 2015-16 season as Man United’s leading scorer with 11 goals and four assists in 31 Premier League games and 17 total goals in 48 overall appearances. His breakout season resulted in the prestigious Golden Boy Award in December as well as a spot on the France roster for Euro 2016.

The 20-year-old striker scored the game-winning goal against Everton in stoppage time to send Man United to the FA Cup Final at Wembley Stadium.

The Red Devils paid £36 million to acquire Martial from Monaco, breaking the world teenage transfer record previously paid for defender Luke Shaw the year before. However, per the Metro, Man United could end up paying the Ligue 1 giants up to £61.6 million if a variety of milestones are met.
