3 reasons why Anthony Martial should stay at Manchester United
Anthony Martial started the 2017-18 campaign on a high note and it looked like he was finally going to be the player everyone expected him to become. But a dip in form coupled with the arrival of Alexis Sanchez has greatly reduced Martial's playing time and several rumours have surfaced over the past couple of weeks linking him with a move away from United.
However, in order to get more playing time, Anthony Martial might have to leave to a smaller club as he is not a finished product just yet. His debut season at Old Trafford was mighty impressive and that's how Martial announced himself to the world.
There are still a lot of things for Martial to be achieved at Manchester United and let's take a look at the 3 reasons why he should stay put at Manchester United.
#3 A little patience will go a long way
Currently, Anthony Martial does not see a whole lot of playing time at Manchester United. That is due to the presence of Alexis Sanchez and Marcus Rashford in the team. All 3 of them operate on the left flank and even though each one of them has undeniable quality there's only room for one in the team.
Given his experience, ability and efficiency, Sanchez gets the nod ahead of Martial and Rashford more often than not. But the point to note here is that Alexis Sanchez is 29 years old. Martial is only 22. Sanchez probably has a maximum of 2 more good seasons in him after which he will inevitably fade.
Anthony Martial, meanwhile, could stay at an improving Manchester United side and learn from the very best and could even go on to win trophies. The world puts too much pressure on the youngsters and they are in a constant quest to prove themselves to the world. That is perhaps the reason why Martial believes he could be doing better.
He could be, let's concede it. But in a couple of years, Martial will be a settled Manchester United's main man. And that is a very promising prospect for a 22-year-old.
