Manchester United forward Anthony Martial is expected to put pen to paper on a new contract before the end of this week according to reports from France.
According to French publication Telefoot, Anthony Martial’s contract will be announced this week.
The new development is music to the ears of Manchester United fans following reports that fellow forward Marcus Rashford is also close to signing a new contract at Old Trafford.
England international forward Rashford was the subject of transfer interest from clubs like Champions League holders Real Madrid and Italian Serie A champions Juventus in the latter part of last year.
Italian giants Inter Milan registered their interest in French international Anthony Martial last year while Jose Mourinho was the Manchester United manager.
The former AS Monaco player wanted to leave the club while Mourinho was in charge but he has had a change of heart with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer doing well as the replacement for the aforementioned Portuguese tactician who was sacked in December.
Martial initially had six months left on his Manchester United contract before the club decided to activate the additional year in his Red Devils deal to take him until the summer of 2020.
A new contract will take him four years beyond that until the end of the 2023/24 campaign.
