Man United reveal how Martial could help Hojlund transfer ‘gamble’ payout

Former Manchester United striker Louis Saha believes the addition of Anthony Martial will dampen Rasmus Hojlund’s prospects after his £72m transfer from Atalanta.

The 20-year-old was officially announced as a United player last Saturday and remained loyal to Old Trafford ahead of his pre-season victory over Lens. However, the Reds’ fans will have to wait a little longer for his debut until he recovers from an injury he sustained while in Italy.

Martial is a man who also struggled with injuries during his tenure at United. The French player is back in full training at Carrington this week after a muscle tear that kept him out of last season’s FA Cup final. Speaking to Betfred, Saha believes the rotation on the forward line will be crucial in managing the expectations surrounding the Dane in his first campaign.

“The manager is smart and will be aware that Rasmus needs time to adapt, and that’s the same for any player,” he said. “The kid has the quality to run right down and score 20 goals next season. His influence will be significant alongside other signings where Manchester United have signed Mason Mount and Andre Onana.

“All three will need time to adapt, but I believe they have signed three great players. All three signings make sense for Erik ten Hag and there is an improved balance to the squad.

“Anthony Martial is still at the club, so I’m wondering if there will be some rotation in the forward line next season. Let’s see what happens.”
