Man United progressing in talks over £190,000-a-week deal

November 10, 2018

Manchester United are close to agreeing a new five-year deal with in-form Anthony Martial following his scintillating start to the campaign.

The France international is out of contract at the end of the season, though Manchester United have the option of extending his contract with a 12-month extension clause.

Anthony Martial has put his troubles with Jose Mourinho behind him so far this season and has netted six goals in 13 matches so far.

The 22-year-old forward has started in each of the club’s last six games and was instrumental in the Red Devils’ stunning comeback against Juventus in Italy on Wednesday.

Anthony Martial rejected United’s opening contract offer of around £160,000-a-week, but the Daily Mail reports that the youngster is now close to finalising an agreement.

The winger, who earned a recall to Didier Deschamps’ France squad, is expected to sign a five-year deal worth around £190,000-a-week.

Manchester United have been in talks with the player’s representatives for months, and a new contract would represent a significant u-turn given the Frenchman wanted to leave Old Trafford last summer transfer window.
