  • The key points that are looked over are:

    – Lyon fans petitioned for the club not to sell him when they were cash strapped

    – He scored more goals than any other teenager in Europes top leagues last season

    – He’s caught the eye of numerous top clubs around Europe (Barcelona, Chelsea, Tottenham and Valencia being the main examples)

    Fact is we need pace up front, movement and someone who can take players on and Martial provides all of that. He’s young so inconsistency is going to be expected but he can’t really do any worse than Rooney and there’s no expectation on him to be an immediate leading star in the side. However, no-one in the UK has heard of him so therefore he’s evidently immediately no good… *sigh*
