5 players who can replace Antony Martial at Manchester United
Anthony Martial’s Manchester United career is going nowhere at the moment. The Frenchman was superb in his debut season for Manchester United but has eventually lost his place to Marcus Rashford.
Also, the resurgence of Jesse Lingard worked against him and the arrival of Alexis Sanchez did not do any good either. He was never given a longer run in the first team by Jose Mourinho this season.
Martial’s current United deal runs until the summer of 2019 and according to various sources from France, he has refused to extend the deal because of his lack of playing time.
A number of top clubs are said to be interested in the 22-year-old and a summer move away from United is on the cards, unless his situation at Manchester United improves in the next few weeks.
On that note, let’s take a look at the players who could replace the Frenchman at Manchester United.
#5 Christian Pulisic
Christian Pulisic is one of the best young footballers in the world right now. At just 19, Pulisic has become the star of American football.
He has already made 86 appearances for Borussia Dortmund and is yet to turn 20. He was a constant presence in the Dortmund lineup this season, after the departure of Ousmane Dembele to Barcelona.
The 19-year-old has attempted 209 dribbles this season and has a pass accuracy of 81%. Pulisic is a versatile forward, regarded for his speed, dribbling, quick feet, and vision.
Though he might not walk in the Manchester United starting eleven right away, he has all the potential to be a star for the club in the future.
