According to reports, Manchester United star Anthony Martial will be given the opportunity to return to France as several Ligue 1 teams consider making a move for the attacker.
As Martial’s career at Old Trafford continues to fade, he had groin surgery at the end of January, which sidelined him for ten weeks.
As he gets ready to leave Old Trafford in the summer, it also raises doubts about whether 28-year-old Martial will feature for the team once again this season.
The Frenchman may go as a free agent nine years after joining from Monaco in a deal that made him the most expensive teenager in global football since United are not renewing his £250,000-per-week contract.
Several Ligue 1 teams are showing interest in the 28-year-old, who is set to become a free agent in the summer. It appears that the player might make an incredible comeback to French football.
The Sun claims that Marseille and the player’s previous team, Monaco, are keeping an eye on the United attacker before his contract expires in the summer.
The Frenchman joined United with great expectations and hopes of a stellar career at Old Trafford. But injuries and inconsistent performances have stopped him from becoming the player many thought he would become.
His laid back attitude and failure to show that he is giving 100% for the team has often worked against him. His early career potential still remains unfulfilled.
Martial originally cost United £36 million in 2015, but the contract was ultimately worth up to £58 million with add-ons.
The inconsistent striker, who spent a season on loan at Sevilla two years ago, has scored 90 goals in 317 appearances throughout his injury-plagued United career.
