The 19-year-old became the most expensive teenage footballer in the world when the Red Devils forked out a staggering £36-million for his signature on deadline day.
Manchester United striker James Wilson has signed a new three year contract with an option for a further year at the club, keeping him tied in until 2019.
Martial had no trouble beating Town goalkeeper Bialkowski, racing through on goal before prodding the ball past him 20 minutes after his introduction from the bench to continue his excellent start to life at Old Trafford.
Wilson progressed through the United youth academy and made his first-team debut in April 2014 in a 3-1 win over Hull City, marking the occasion with two goals.
The former United and England star was part of some great Manchester United teams and paid Martial a compliment with a succinct description of the player.
The Black Cats are bottom of the table and still searching for their first league win, but Advocaat is still looking forward to meeting his old friend again, even though United will be overwhelming favourites.
Ipswich started the second half the stronger, and their best chance came of a volley by midfielder Jay Tabb, which was blocked by Chris Smalling. What we have seen until now, he can do it. “His personality is that he is an open guy, he is listening, he is watching, he is focusing on the matches”. He is a very talented forward player and has a keen eye for goal. “That’s also why I want to keep [James] Wilson until December [before a potential loan] maybe because he is also a typical striker running in behind”.
Van Gaal will field either Ashley Young or Matteo Darmian at left-back against Sunderland as Luke Shaw, Paddy McNair and Marcos Rojo are injured. He knows that he can score and he can score because of his fellow players.
“He can play all these positions (across the front)”, Van Gaal said. I have thought about moving Rodwell into defence, because he is good in the air and has got two good feet.
“It is not so easy to do that, but I asked him after the game if he felt fit and he said he did”.
