With Cristiano Ronaldo’s future uncertain, is it time for Manchester United to look at Anthony Martial? This article will discuss the role Ronaldo has played in Martial’s turnaround and his relationship with the Portuguese superstar. A resurgence in Martial’s performances under the leadership of manager Louis van Gaal has fueled speculation about the forward’s future. But is his future really in doubt?
Anthony Martial’s turnaround
Anthony Martial’s turnaround at Manchester United has been nothing short of stunning. The Frenchman is a PS14.4 million-rated player who has been struggling for form over the past few years. Having been loaned out to Sevilla, Martial has struggled to make an impression, but has returned to form this pre-season and scored nine goals for the Red Devils. Martial’s recent performance against Liverpool and the Melbourne Victory is an example of his improved form and a welcome sight for Manchester United fans.
The turnaround comes at a time when many Manchester United fans had already given up hope that Martial could ever become a star. However, the Frenchman has made a stunning turnaround in both his attitude and form. While the club’s recent slump in form is concerning, Martial isn’t ignoring the difficult situation he’s found himself in. The new manager will give him a fresh start and provide a much-needed reset.
Last season, Martial was disappointed with his performance for Manchester United. He managed just two goals and an assist in 23 appearances, while playing on loan in Spain for Sevilla. He also missed the club’s two-week tour due to a family problem. Now, though, he’s back in the fold at Old Trafford and is expected to play an important role in the team’s future.
The Frenchman’s current contract at Manchester United runs until 2024, but there is nothing to suggest that he will turn around his fortunes at the Old Trafford club. Juventus, on the other hand, are expected to lose star midfielder Paulo Dybala in the summer after failing to agree a deal with him. If Martial impresses, they will be sure to be interested in him.
During pre-season, Martial expressed his interest in signing with the Red Devils. He also expressed his desire to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic. Despite his lack of experience, Martial’s development under Solskjaer has been a success story at Old Trafford. Despite a poor relationship with Jose Mourinho, the Frenchman gradually adapted to life at Old Trafford. In all, Martial ended up scoring 23 goals in 48 games – his best season at the club.
Amid speculation of his future, Martial has been linked with a move to Juventus. The Frenchman’s impressive performances on the pre-season tour have sparked interest from Juventus and Paris Saint-Germain. Manchester United have been looking for a new forward, and the Frenchman is proving his worth. However, he has not reached his full potential, and has not produced the goals he was expected to produce.
Against Australia, Martial’s team started brightly but were unable to score in the opening half. Martial was superb, and had three shots on target, including a fine effort from the edge of the area. His quick response and ability to get up and down helped his side to win the game. And he will now be a main target for Erik ten Hag’s men after a disappointing 2021-22 season.
Cristiano Ronaldo’s influence at Manchester United
The question is: Will Cristiano Ronaldo’s departure wreak havoc on Manchester United’s title hopes? The Portuguese striker recently informed the club that he wants to leave, but Manchester United have not shown much interest in selling their star man. The club has not ruled out allowing Ronaldo to leave, but this is unlikely unless United receive a substantial bid for the player. If the player wishes to leave, he can do so to join a Champions League contender.
But there are serious ramifications to this strategy. It makes it harder to set up structures that the team can control. It also makes the team predictable. While Ronaldo’s goalscoring interventions helped protect United from a worse season last season, it also makes it difficult for the club to maintain a consistent pattern of play. This is where a long-term solution to Ronaldo’s dominance at Manchester United lies.
The five-time Ballon d’Or is expected to lead by example at Manchester United. This season, the five-time Ballon d’Or has already exhibited an impressive level of team spirit. The five-time Ballon d’Or winner has also been an inspiration in training. A goal in the last minute against Villarreal has shown how hard he is working and proving that he can be an inspiration to other players.
Earlier this year, Ronaldo was dissatisfied with the team around him, and he was even frustrated with the gym at the training ground. His influence has been felt across the club and is unlikely to diminish. The United fans voted him player of the year, and Ronaldo’s influence on the club’s success may be the most important reason why they have been able to retain him.
Rangnick’s decision to make a permanent appointment is not final, but he may have a say in the matter. The club’s decision-making process may be influenced by Ronaldo, who would not want Rangnick to be rewarded for a long-term role at United. If Ronaldo is not happy with Rangnick, he could always leave for Portugal or even retire. It’s important to remember that Ronaldo did not sign on for a second Old Trafford stay simply because he wanted to watch.
The controversy surrounding the former Portugal international is undoubtedly a cause for concern. There are many Manchester United fans who feel that Ronaldo disrespected the fans when he left the club for Real Madrid for a world record PS80 million. Nevertheless, his on-field antics have led to debate. His silky skills are combined with cocky arrogance, as if he believes he is the best.
Despite the controversy that surrounded the player’s social media presence, he is still a highly lucrative player for the club. Manchester United shirts with his name still sell well despite his reputation as a bad influence. During the time when he arrived in Manchester, his shirts sold more than all the other players combined. While Manchester United have an unfailingly strong social media following, the player’s posts have been viewed by more than half a billion people.
Anthony Martial’s relationship with Cristiano Ronaldo
There have been reports that Anthony Martial’s relationship with Cristiano Portugal star Ronaldo is in shambles, but the Frenchman has brushed these claims off and backed the Portuguese star. Despite Ronaldo’s mixed return to Manchester United since his summer move from Juventus, the player is still regarded as a top professional. Martial is currently on loan at Sevilla and is expected to face West Ham in the Europa League on Thursday.
There are a number of possible explanations for why the relationship between Martial and Ronaldo is strained. Martial met Ronaldo when he was filming a Nike commercial in Les Ulis. When the pair were at Juventus, they played against Monaco in the Champions League. This was a chance for Martial to impress his new manager. It’s not clear whether Ronaldo’s relationship with Martial is in shambles, but the player has plenty to play for in the coming season.
Manchester United have signed Mason Greenwood in the summer, but Martial has struggled to make an impact since his arrival. The summer signing from Manchester United has failed to gel with Ronaldo and has hampered the team’s form. Other players have tried to link up with the Portuguese star, but to no avail. For instance, Ashley Greenwood and Ronaldo have only played eight times together, and neither player has assisted the other. Although Greenwood and Ronaldo have scored twice together, their relationship is still unreliable.
Despite this, the Frenchman has scored 79 goals in 269 appearances for Manchester United. But he hasn’t assisted this season, and didn’t even make an appearance under Ralf Rangnick until an eight-minute cameo against Watford. In addition, the Frenchman suffered from a difficult season last season, plagued by suspensions, injuries, and non-selection.
The Portuguese star is also facing an uncertain future at Manchester United after revealing his desire to leave the club. However, if Martial can score in the Champions League, he could be the main striker at the club. Manchester United have an in-house striker in Martial and a striker in Marcus Rashford. However, Solskjaer has already indicated that they will start a winger or a midfielder for Ronaldo against Newcastle.
The Portuguese legend is a legend at Manchester United but a lack of goals has damaged his status at the club. His lack of goals have sparked criticism from many and he has been accused of being part of the problem. Manchester United have lost the FA Cup and the Champions League twice this season, and their record in the final third of the pitch is shaky. Several reports have claimed that there is a breakup in the Manchester United dressing room as a result of the absence of Ronaldo.
Despite this negative press, Ronaldo has been linked with a move to the Bundesliga. Manchester City and Napoli are reportedly interested, but a move to the Bundesliga is unlikely as they don’t have the financial means to bring him back to Italy. However, after his impressive performances in the Champions League, Ronaldo remains at Manchester United, and he may end up as a bench player.
