The French starlet became the most expensive teenager in the world when The Red Devils agreed to pay £37.8million to Monaco for him last summer.

There were plenty of questions raised when it later emerged that figure could eventually rise to £58million, should the exciting forward continue to hit a number of agreed targets.

United have been both surprised and delighted at the rapid rate of knots the 20-year-old has made ever since scoring on his debut against Liverpool.

Martial has managed 15 goals in 46 games so far and he also hit the injury-time goal against Everton which booked United’s FA Cup Final place against Crystal Palace later this month.

And Martial will be hoping he can continue to deliver the goals which can now secure silverware and a top-four finish for Louis van Gaal’s.

He told MUTV: “I never feel any extra pressure at all. The only pressure that I feel is the pressure that I put on myself to do well and to work hard throughout the season to try and help the team.

“That’s what drives me on. I think in that respect it (his price tag) has not affected me.”

Martial added: “I can’t wait to go back (to Wembley) and try to win the Cup. I really hope we manage to win some silverware and obviously with that make the fans happy with the result.”
