Anthony Martial is expected to sign a new five-and-a-half-year contract at Manchester United before the weekend. According to Sky Sports the club and player are currently in the final stages of the negotiations and could announce a deal within the next 48 hours.
The 23-year-old winger rejected an offer from United last October and was set to leave the club, but much has changed at the club since then. Jose Mourinho was sacked in December and was replaced with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer. Martial has been performing admirably well under the caretaker boss and has decided he wants to stay at the club.
Martial’s current deal was set to expire at the end of this season, but the club decided to trigger an automatic one-year extension last summer. Martial will sign a new contract until the summer of 2024. After the French winger signs his new deal, United will be focusing on extending David de Gea’s contract.
