Three-time European champions Manchester United have been handed a huge boost following the news that forward Anthony Martial is close to signing a new five-year contract thereby committing his long-term future to the Red Devils.
The new development will definitely be music to the ears of Manchester United fans with French international star Anthony Martial set to stay at Old Trafford for the long haul despite the interest of Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan.
The Italians were keen to sign the former AS Monaco player before Manchester United activated the additional year clause in his current deal with the Red Devils to take his contract at the club to the end of next season (2019/20 season).
Martial had less than six months left on his Red Devils contract before the club made the decision to activate the additional year clause as revealed previously.
Anthony Martial was one of the few bright spots for Manchester United earlier this season while Jose Mourinho was the Manchester United manager.
The former Chelsea and Real Madrid boss was dismissed in December after he fell out with his players and results also plummeted.
He was swiftly replaced by ex-Red Devils striker Ole Gunnar Solskjaer who has won all his six games in charge of the team.
