Manchester United fans want to see Anthony Martial as their next number nine should Romelu Lukaku leave the club in the summer.
Martial earlier donned the number 9 jersey for the Red Devils back in 2015 but had to relinquish it to accommodate an incoming Zlatan Ibrahimovic.
Romelu Lukaku took over the number nine from the Swede once he decided to leave Old Trafford for MLS and Martial has been wearing the number jersey ever since.
The Frenchman has been struggling for form and fitness in the last few seasons and fans seem to think that a change in number could reciprocate in a change in fortune too.
Romelu Lukaku is all but destined to leave Old Trafford in the summer and fans have made up their mind on seeing Anthony Martial as their next number nine once the move is made official.
Take a look:
I wouldn’t go that far
I want Martial as a #9 again. The man gave every CB in the league sleepless nights.

Not a bad idea after all!
If Lukaku does leave then Martial should get back the #9 shirt & give D. James the number 11 shirt 👀

The numbers speak for themselves!
James – 11
Martial – 9
Sign a number 10.
No debate. #MUFC
