Anthony Martial rejects Lyon loan advance

Man United French international striker Anthony Martial turned down a late loan advance from Ligue 1 side Olympique Lyonnais tonight, even though his future remains unclear at Old Trafford.

As reported by Get French Football from The teamThe versatile Martial has no intention of returning to France despite the Red Devils’ summer recruiting drive that has seen Cristiano Ronaldo return to Old Trafford and Jadon Sancho return to Manchester, albeit on the other side.

Perhaps it is a curious choice for Martial, who is now one of nine players vying for three or four attacking spots on Ole Gunnar Solskjær’s team, and who will almost certainly have to be brought back to the flank if he has any chance to regulate. . presenting this season.

Quietly influential; Martial may still have the role of Man United

It’s hard to read the room when it comes to assessing Martial’s tenure with Man United since his arrival from AS Monaco in 2015/16.

On the surface, the data suggests that it has been far better than many may be willing to admit. In 261 appearances for the Red Devils, Martial has amassed 78 goals and amassed 50 assists for a one-shadow goal contribution rate below 0.50 contributions / game over six seasons. For a player who has never always been the first choice, those numbers aren’t that bad.

In the two seasons in which Martial logged more than 2,000 minutes on the field he has delivered, including an impressive 2019-20 season that saw him score 17 Premier League goals and add seven assists. Additionally, Martial has broken the league’s double-digit goal barrier three times, and his contributions, while modest, could play an important role this season.

It is not known how Sancho will re-acclimate to life in the Premier League, nor is there a current option at the club that could replace Edinson Cavani internally after he leaves next summer after his contract ends.

He may be forced to fight for his place this season even after Dan James completed his move to Leeds, but there is still scope for Martial to have a long-term future at Man United when you consider that he is still only 25 years old. old.
