Martial is enjoying his approach into Ten Hag’s plans after two targets in as many video games in pre-season.
The France ahead’s future continues to be not clear as United’s new supervisor oversees a serious clear-out at Outdated Trafford – however his performances in opposition to Liverpool and Melbourne this week will do his probabilities no hurt.
Ten Hag at all times deliberate on giving the 26-year-old the possibility to impress this summer time – and to this point he’s taking that chance.
Most notable has been his angle and work-rate. His chasing down of Liverpool’s defenders was a key think about United’s 4-0 win in Bangkok on Monday – in addition to a effective end – and in opposition to Melbourne he was continually on the transfer, on the lookout for house in and round a packed penalty space.
His strike simply earlier than half time was coolly executed to provide Man Utd a 2-1 lead on the break.
With Cristiano Ronaldo declaring his intention to depart – even when Man Utd are adamant he’s not on the market – Ten Hag has been pressured to take a look at different choices.
He has already missed out on main strike goal Darwin Nunez, whereas the membership are almost £20m wanting Ajax’s asking worth for Antony.
Martial might be the most important beneficiary of the uncertainty up entrance and seize the possibility to revive his profession.
