Anthony Martial Trains with Man Utd Ahead of Real Betis


Anthony Martial has been training with Manchester United ahead of their Europa League clash with Real Betis, but doubts remain over his availability amid uncertainty surrounding the future of RB Leipzig midfielder Marcel Sabitzer.

The French forward has been out of action since suffering a hamstring injury in the Red Devils’ 1-0 win over West Bromwich Albion in the Premier League last month.

Martial has been working hard to regain full fitness and was seen taking part in a training session with his United teammates on Wednesday.

However, it remains to be seen whether he will be fit enough to feature against Real Betis on Thursday night.

The 24-year-old has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford in recent weeks, with reports suggesting that he could be used as a makeweight in a potential deal for Sabitzer.

The Austrian international has been heavily linked with a move to United in recent weeks, but Leipzig are reportedly unwilling to let him leave for anything less than his £45million release clause.

United are believed to be keen to offload Martial in order to raise funds for the deal, but it remains to be seen whether they will be able to do so before the transfer window closes.

Martial has been in impressive form for United this season, scoring 11 goals and providing four assists in 25 appearances in all competitions.

He has been a key player for Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s side and his absence has been felt in recent weeks, with United struggling for goals in his absence.

The Red Devils will be hoping that Martial can prove his fitness in time for Thursday’s clash with Real Betis, as they look to secure their place in the last 16 of the Europa League.

However, with doubts still lingering over his availability and the future of Sabitzer, it remains to be seen whether Martial will be able to feature against the Spanish side.
