The 26-year-old returned to Manchester United this summer following an unsuccessful loan spell at Sevilla during the second half of last season. However, he seems to have found some form under new manager Erik ten Hag and has scored in his side’s first two pre-season clashes. Jones believes that the 2022-23 season could be Martial’s last chance at the Theater of Dreams and told GiveMeSport:
“This is his final chance, and I think almost every United fan actually still wants him to succeed.”
The journalist added: “So, if he makes the most of his chances, this could actually be great for everyone. And this could bring about a different atmosphere at Old Trafford for players like this to be revived.” Martial has scored 79 goals in 269 appearances in all competitions for United. However, after an excellent 2019-20 campaign where he netted 23 times (all comps.), he has scored just five Premier League goals over the last two seasons.
