Manchester United prepared to keep Anthony Martial if suitable bid not received

Manchester United’s lack of goals this season is there for all to see with United the lowest scorers among the top 12 teams in the Premier League.

It was a recurring problem in manager Erik ten Hag’s first season as well and despite the addition of Rasmus Hojlund, not much has improved.

The young Dane has been on fire in the Champions League but is yet to open his account in the Premier League. Last season’s top scorer Marcus Rashford has managed only one goal thus far.

The United boss has also been let down by Anthony Martial, whose consistent lackadaisical displays on the field for the best part of his United career make one wonder how he has managed to stay at the club for so long.

He was heralded as one of the brightest young talents in the world when United signed him for €60 million back in 2015. But in these seven years, the Frenchman has scored double-digit goals in the Premier League only thrice.

Ten Hag chose to give him a chance last season and while he did score nine times in all competitions, the France international’s poor injury record means the United boss knows better than to trust him.

Last season he missed 27 games in all competitions, and even when fit, his lazy approach often infuriates fans who believe the forward can do a lot more.
