As a football fan, who doesn’t dare themselves to dream every once in a while?
That’s exactly what our Manchester United fans in the Football Transfer Tavern are doing right now after not only seeing their beloved Red Devils inflict another defeat on arch-rivals Liverpool but also because they saw new £36 million signing Anthony Martial start to his United career in the best way possible with a fine debut goal.
In what turned out to be a fairytale start for the young Frenchman, call them stupid but some of our resident Red Devils supporters by the bar this evening are questioning whether they have a future Ballon d’Or winner on their books.
We’ve all read the comparisons to Arsenal legend Thierry Henry and at this stage, albeit incredibly early to cast judgement on what he’ll achieve at Old Trafford, why shouldn’t United fans be daring to dream that Martial could be the next ingenious signing after the days of Cristiano Ronaldo.
Every time a transfer is made – and one as large as £36 million – football fans always secretly question whether the player could become a club legend during his stay and with the likes of Alexis Sanchez making an incredible impact in his first season and seemingly on his way to stardom with Arsenal, why can’t Martial do the same?
That’s why today we’re humouring our Manchester United punters while listening to the five reasons they’ve come up with how Anthony Martial can win the Ballon d’Or in his time with the Red Devils.
