Anthony Martial takes to social media to dedicate a post to his girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz Pires

Anthony Martial has taken to social media to dedicate a heartfelt post to his new girlfriend Melanie Da Cruz Pires ahead of Manchester United’s clash with Watford on Saturday.

The French striker has endured a mixed start to life under new Manchester United boss Jose Mourinho following the Portuguese coach’s appointment at Old Trafford last summer.

Martial has been limited to nine Premier League starts for Manchester United so far this season and has made a further four appearances from the bench.

The 21-year-old has scored two goals and made three assists in the Premier League for the Red Devils so far this season.

However, Martial seems to be completely settled in his personal life away from football, if his latest post on Instagram is anything to go by.

Martial shared the photo above of himself with his girlfriend enjoying their summer holidays last year on his personal Instagram account and wrote the caption: “My love ❤️”
