He has been linked with a summer exit
Anthony Martial joined Manchester United from Monaco for £36 million, potentially rising to £58 million, on a four-year contract with the option of another year in 2015. Since then he has been an integral part of the team and is considered one of the best young talents in the world.
The France International started last season off brightly and was regular during the first half of the season under Jose Mourinho. But since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in the January transfer window from Arsenal, he has found minutes harder to come by and has started only 6 games since the Chilean joined.
He still managed to score 11 goals and provided 7 assists in all competitions. He was also awarded the club’s Player of the month three times.
It was thought that the 22 year old could leave the club this summer in order to get more first team football and has been linked with a move to host of clubs. He still has a year left on his contract and the Red Devils have the option to extend it by another year.
His representative further intensified the speculations last month by claiming that his client wants to leave the club this summer as they have been waiting for a long time for a contract extension.
However, the Frenchman took active part in the pre-season training and current is in United States. He played 62 minutes in United’s opening game of pre-season.
Manchester United are ready to trigger a one-year option on Martial’s contract, even if the forward pushes for a move away, the Manchester Evening News reports.
The Premier League giants do not want to sell him this summer, and it is unlikely that they will receive an offer that tempts them to let the player leave.
