Anthony Martial is still unwilling to commit to a new deal at Old Trafford with his current agreement running out next summer. In this instance, the club will be forced to trigger a 12-month contract extension and think hard whether to cash in next summer or not.
Anthony Joran Martial born 5 December 1995 (age 22 years), Massy, Essonne, is a French professional footballer who plays as a forward for Premier League club Manchester United and the France national team. He was the recipient of the 2015 Golden Boy Award for the best under-21 player in Europe.
At the same time, United won’t have a shortage of suitors. As Sky point out, Juventus always remain eager for the 22-year-old with Chelsea probing into the situation, as well. Both clubs are ready to act in January.

Manchester United fans posted concerning the future surround their stars palayer. Wonder why our best players won’t commit their future to the club?
Talks with the Frenchman have been ongoing since the last summer when Jose Mourinho wanted to offload the player to raise funds for other players, probably Willian or Toby Alderweireld. The United hierarchy opposed as the head coach has seemingly changed his mind. Mourinho now openly wants Martial to stay.
Part of the problem may be the rough treatment the attacker has experienced under his head coach. Last season, Martial’s agent claimed his client had never had issues with the supporters and the reasons for not pledging future to United were purely footballing. The Frenchman struggled with game time after Alexis Sanchez had joined the Reds claiming his spot in the starting XI.
