Anthony Martial has been in the headlines of late, with the Frenchman now said to be set to go into surgery for a minor issue.

Erik ten Hag has displayed a real ruthless streak at Manchester United. If you’re not fighting for the cause (Cristiano Ronaldo), or you’re questioning his methods (Jadon Sancho) you’re out the door.

Anthony Martial was next to fall foul to the Dutchman, with the striker deemed not fit enough to train with the senior squad, after picking up an illness in early December. We haven’t seen the Frenchman since.

Well, the player’s agent has now clapped back, speaking exclusively to Sky Sports. He’d confirm that Martial hasn’t been told to train alone because he is not fit. Rather, the player requires surgery on a minor hip issue. He will be unavailable for selection for a short while, dealing United another blow as they’re already short in the striker position.

Martial’s agent has also backed up stories claiming that the player will not leave United this month. Instead, he will remain at Old Trafford until at least the summer, with his contract set to expire. The club are not expected to trigger a one-year extension clause in his contract.

With so few games to play between now and the end of the season, if Rasmus Hojlund stays fit, Martial will find his minutes limited. I still believe he and the gaffer aren’t seeing eye-to-eye at present, which could explain why the ex-AS Monaco man has been missing for so long.

It does make sense for United to move on from Martial. He hasn’t developed at all during his nine year stint in Manchester, while he’s on pretty hefty wages. The club will need to replace him this summer, that’s for sure.
