Manchester United winger Anthony Martial will reportedly sign a contract extension at the club after manager Jose Mourinho made a dramatic u-turn.
According to the report from Daily Mirror, Mourinho has eased up a bit on his earlier stance that the French international striker has no future at Old Trafford.
Mourinho and Martial clashed over the summer after the latter failed to fly back to the Red Devils’ pre-season of the United States following the birth of his child.
The 22-year-old was then linked with moves away with clubs like Premier League side Tottenham Hotspur and Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan but nothing came out of the transfer links.
The aforementioned report also revealed that Martial will sign a new five-year contract worth £130,000 on a weekly basis.
He joined the Red Devils from French Ligue 1 side AS Monaco in the summer of 2015 and has scored 25 goals in 91 league appearances.
The news of his potential contract extension is a big boost for Manchester United ahead of their crucial league clash with Chelsea at the weekend.
Manchester United are already seven points adrift of top spot and can’t afford to lose more grounds in the race for the Premier League title.
