Anthony Martial happy with life at Manchester United amid Arsenal interest – report

by Leo Nieboer

Anthony Martial is happy with life at Manchester United amid rumours of an impending bid from Arsenal, according to reports.

The 21-year-old endured a difficult debut campaign under Jose Mourinho, starting less than half of Man United’s Premier League games, prompting murmurs over the summer of a potential move to Arsenal as a replacement for Alexis Sanchez.

But the Frenchman was quick to dismiss the links as baseless on social media and has since been an effervescent force at Old Trafford, claiming five goals and five assists so far this season.

And according to M.E.N‘s Samuel Luckhurst, Martial is content with life in Manchester and will not entertain any future interest from Arsenal as their hunt for a Sanchez replacement continues.

Most players who have only started one Premier League game by October would not, you imagine, feel exactly content with their predicament.

But Mourinho has managed Martial brilliantly, stirring the competition between the youngster and Marcus Rashford to storming effect.

It is not the volume of game time that bothers Martial, but rather what he does with that game time. And nobody this season has come close to replicating the sheer ruthlessness and damage inflicted by the winger.
