Anthony Martial: Kind words for Zlatan

Anthony Martial says it “would be nice” to play alongside Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Manchester United next season.

Ibrahimovic is set to leave Paris Saint-Germain at the end of the season, with United among the Premier League clubs linked with the Sweden striker.

Louis van Gaal hinted over the weekend the 34-year-old is too old to sign, but Martial would welcome him to Old Trafford.

“It would be nice to play alongside him,” Martial told Telefoot. “He is an extraordinary player — he won almost everything.”

United’s 3-0 defeat at Tottenham on Sunday is set to increase calls for United to replace Van Gaal in the summer, but Martial has given his backing to the Dutchman.

“I really like Louis van Gaal. He was always behind me,” he added. “He made me come and made me play. This is the most important thing.

“We will have to strengthen during the transfer window, although we have a good team.”
