Anthony Martial dismisses Old Trafford exit rumours
Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has dismissed speculations that he could be on his way out of the club in the summer.
The French forward progress seemed to have stalled under Jose Mourinho and he is being linked with a return to the Ligue 1 with PSG reportedly his potential destination.
The 21-year-old was brought to Old Trafford by Louis Van Gaal from AS Monaco on a four-year contract for £36 million which could rise to £58 million in the summer of 2015, making him the most expensive teenager.
After enjoying a debut season under the Dutch coach which saw him netted 17 goals to become United top scorer, Martial has failed to replicate that form and has struggled to cement a place in Mourinho’s team, casting doubt over his future.
Martial, who has scored six goals for United this season, has only featured once in United’s last four Premier League games and started just one league match since the turn of this year. He was an unused substitute against Hull City match and Leicester City.
With all these being summed up, reports from the English media claimed that the disgruntled forward would fancy a move to PSG in the summer. But he was quick to rebuff the rumour that is already gaining ground via his Twitter handle:
“Dont listen the papers it’s wrong thanks Come on United”

Martial has found himself behind Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Marcus Rashford, Juan Mata and Jesse Lingard in the pecking order and hee really has to up his game to win back his place.
