Manchester United forward Anthony Martial has revealed that he is not considering a move to Paris Saint-Germain in the summer as he is happy with his work in Old Trafford. The former Monaco man, who transferred for a record £57m ($81m) in the summer, has scored 12 goals this season and picked up six assists, second only to Wayne Rooney in the United line-up.
Martial revealed that he was sceptical about his ability to cope with the intensity of the Premier League, something he has been accused of a few years back. However, he insists that he has grown into the role and he will be much better with a year's worth of experience behind him. The forward is likely to travel with the French squad to the European Championships later this year after impressing manager Didier Deschamps over the numerous friendlies in the past year.
Martial can play across the front three but he revealed that he likes to play through the middle where he gets the most freedom. The 20-year-old has been deployed as a centre-forward in the absence of Wayne Rooney, who is currently nursing a knee injury.
"They (United) are not at the top of the top, but I hope next year they will be," Martial said, as quoted by the Mirror.
"At the beginning I was scared because I had heard a lot about the intensity of the English game, but I realised during the matches that I was able to keep up, and I was really very happy about that because as a youngster I struggled to finish games, at the age of 17 they said I needed to work on my endurance. I love the English game, it was really everything I wanted."
The Red Devils still have some way left before the season culminates to an end, with a FA Cup win still on the horizon. Louis van Gaal's men shall travel to West Ham on 13 April in a quarter-final replay, having drawn the game at Old Trafford thanks to a last minute equaliser by Martial.
