Anthony Martial is destined to succeed at Old Trafford.



Manchester United midfielder Daley Blind is convinced Anthony Martial will become a key player at Old Trafford.

Martial, who sealed a move from Ligue 1 side Monaco last summer, has been impressive in the Premier League and has scored eight goals in 27 appearances for the Red Devils.

However, Holland international Blind has given his backing to the 20-year-old to become one of the best strikers in the world.

"If you come with a transfer fee like that and perform like he did in his first game then it is really good for him," Blind told manutd.com.


"He is a big talent, he is still young and we cannot forget that. But you can see on the training pitch and even in the matches already how much quality he has.

"If he is working that hard like he is now, improving and improving each week, then he can become a really great striker.

"He is very quick of course, he is strong and I think he is really calm in front of the goal. He has everything needed to become a great striker.

"Now he is evolving and performing in the training sessions, working hard on and off the pitch with his languages and personality, he is coming along really well.


"He is a bit quiet, he is still young, but he is always in for a joke and he’s a good lad."
