Man United to offer Martial a new deal

According to reports from ESPN, Manchester United are ready to offer French forward, Anthony Martial a new and improved contract at Oldham Trafford to put an end to speculation about his future at the club. The 22 year old has been a crucial member of Jose Mourinho’s team this season, scoring 11 times and creating a further 7 in all competitions, though the arrival of Alexis Sanchez has led to lesser playing time than he would have wanted .

Reports have suggested that he would be open to a move away from the club, if his starters shirt can’t be guaranteed, but with this latest move by the club, it seems the club value him a lot and are keen to tie him to a new deal at the club. Juventus are rumoured to be interested in his services, as the club’s Vice President, Pavel Nedved was spotted in a London hotel with Neilo Lucas, who works for Doyen, the player’s representatives.

The club tried to tie him down to a new deal last December, though a deal fell through. His current contract expires in the summer of 2019, though we have a 12-month extension clause. Arsenal were linked to his signature as part of the Sanchez transfer to United, but Mourinho failed to sanction the deal as he views Martial as a player for the future.

Martial is a player that can play as a striker but has used predominantly as a left winger in his time at United. He is fact, can dribble, can shoot and can also create goals as well. Keeping him at the club will be good business.
