Playmaker: Could it be “Martial first, Rashford second” at Manchester United this season?

Playmaker: Could it be “Martial first, Rashford second” at Manchester United this season?

As the dust settled after Manchester United’s 2-1 win over Tottenham in the International Champions Cup, one player stood out beyond the rest for fans of the Red Devils, Anthony Martial.

The French striker scored the opening goal of the game in what was to be a fiery affair in Shanghai, with Moussa Sissoko’s tackle on Daniel James being a flashpoint in the game and resulting in Spurs manager Mauricio Pochettino apologising to United in his post-match press conference via BBC Sport.

But bad tackles aside, the game belonged to Martial, who was praised to no end for his performance during the game, and MrAaronUtd from Fan TV believes in the video below that the former Monaco striker could be the man to take over the starting attacking role at the club next season when Ole Gunnar Solskjaer decides who to play as the main centre forward.

The Guardian report that United are in talks with Juventus about a potential swap deal that could see current Red Devils number nine Romelu Lukaku head to the Serie A champions in exchange for Argentina international Paulo Dybala, which could see the dream of Martial playing as striker again for the Premier League giants put back on the backburner for a little while longer.

Manchester United fans, who should be the club’s main striker next season? Let us know!
