Manchester United legend Gary Neville has claimed that he is so confused about French forward Anthony Martial.
Martial is currently in his best form this season as the young forward has now bagged four goals in his last three games.
However, last week, the France international has reportedly turned down a new contract at Old Trafford, which casts doubt on his United future.
And former Red Devils skipper Neville has claimed that the club need to agree a long-term contract with Martial and show faith in him.
“Is he worth fighting for?” questioned Neville.
“Fans are torn on him, I’ve been confused by him in terms of what he is.”
“I can’t make my mind up. Some weeks I think he’s brilliant other weeks I think: ‘I’m not sure he’s not a Manchester United player.’”
“If you look at his whole career – he’s played a mountain of games for someone who’s 22 years of age. He’s still a very very young boy.”
“He’s scored a lot of goals but not at a great ratio – especially not the ratio you expect of great modern wide players,” Neville continued.
“He finishes well – he makes difficult finishes look really simple. He was brilliant against Chelsea, we saw one yesterday against Everton.”
“He’s got power and pace and when he cuts inside he can hit a ball.”
“When you give the ball to his feet – just to his feet – he comes alive.”
Asked if he is worth handing a lucrative contract too, Neville replied: “Manchester United have to show patience with this lad.”
“He’ll be on 20/25 goals a season for United… So they have to invest in him.”
“Jose Mourinho’s wanted a player who’s ready now to win a league, and he’s not ready now, there’s no doubt about that. But he can go to another level.”
Martial has proved a point of debate since his arrival at Old Trafford from Monaco in 2015 as he scored a wonderful solo goal against Liverpool on his debut.
The 22-year-old has since made 147 appearances and scored 41 goals in all competitions for United.
