I've become so frustrated with the idea of united selling martial. Yes he hasn’t been consistent in terms of form, but he was one of united's best this season in terms of output. I’d dare say that at one point this season I would’ve picked him over rashford (if forced to choose) .

My frustration boils down to the fact that we shouldn’t have purchased Sanchez with martial displaying increasingly better performances. We now stand to lose, in my opinion, one of the biggest talents we’ve had in quite some time. I loved the idea that martial rashford and lingard could form a devastating front partnership, if given time to gel with one another, but we are making snap decisions, which is pushing our club further and further back.

To those that will argue in Sanchez’s defence, I don’t disagree with you, on his day he is a game changer, but imagine if we had panic bought players which pushed ronaldo, or giggs (depending which era you choose) out of the team, without given them a chance to develop. I remember ronaldo wasn’t too dissimilar to martial in his early united career, some games he would look like a world beater and some games he would flatter to deceive.

However, we stuck with him and he turned into quite possibly the greatest attacking threat of our generation. I worry martial won’t get the same opportunity cause we are pigeon holing pogba, sanchez, mata, rashford, lingard and martial into about 3-4 positions, when pogba and Sanchez haven't done enough in my opinion to warrant inclusion.

I also agree that Sanchez is trying his arse off in most games and I agree that the players around him aren’t helping, but martial was managing well with the same level of performance and Sanchez hasn’t proved to be much different, expect that he is nigh on 30 and martials best years are in front of him.

I’m not trying to pick on Sanchez cause I would’ve loved him 4-5 years ago, but we bought martial and we have rashford, both of whom were almost competing with each other at the beginning of the season, which I though was phenomenal for us, but we had to go and buy Sanchez just cause city wanted him. He is in danger of turning into another di Maria and even if he does come good, we don’t have much time left with him.

He doesn't smile so he can go for free as far as I'm concerned.

In my opinion you need 2 players in each position to challenge.

We have not yet seen the best of Sanchez and cannot just write him off because all season we have been inconsistant.

If martial doesn't want to stay and earn his right to play in the team then let him go. To be a world class professional you need the attitude to go along with the ability.

I’m not writing Sanchez off by any means but realistically we could potentially (if Jose has a change of attitude ) have two or three really good years out of him and we’ve bought him to compete in the left position, when we already had martial and rashford, with martial in particular looking better for us this season. I can understand his attitude to be honest. First he lost his place to zlatan and lukaku and now to Sanchez, after he has been moved from the striker position (although I think lw is better suited to him) . If he doesn’t want to stay then I agree we should let him go, but knowing his luck, he’ll have an amazing end to the season on the right side of our attack and we’ll bloody sign bale.
