The France international’s future appeared to be up in the air at the start of the Premier League season following a difficult two-year spell under Jose Mourinho.
The Portuguese head coach hasn’t been afraid to criticise the winger in the British media, while Martial has been unable to consistently hold down a starting spot.
However, Martial has put an impressive run of form together over the past six weeks or so, highlighting that the Frenchman still has a role to play at Old Trafford.
The 22-year-old has netted six times in his last seven games in all competitions to help Manchester United close some ground on their top-four rivals Chelsea FC, Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal.
However, Martial continues to be linked with a potential exit at Old Trafford with less than 18 months left to run on his current deal with the 20-time English champions.
Former Manchester United striker Saha is urging Martial to remain at Old Trafford to help fire Mourinho’s side to silverware.
“He should stay because he has got a great platform,” Saha is quoted as saying by Sky Sports.
“Of course he needs to understand the long-term plan is there for him because it is a personal career – it is not only about the club.
“If you don’t play well you have to remember a club will transfer you and fans will start to boo. But that is not the case of Anthony, he is a loved by the fans. He is loved by the manager I am sure.
“It’s an understanding, making a compromise in some ways, to make sure the player is happy and create a platform to win trophies again.”
Martial moved to Manchester United in a £36m deal from AS Monaco in the 2015 summer transfer window.
The France star scored 17 times in the 2015-16 season under Louis van Gaal to earn rave reviews.
However, Martial has struggled for consistency since Mourinho replaced the Dutchman at Old Trafford.
