Anthony Martial has entered the final year of his contract with Manchester United, with numerous major European sides hoping to make use of this situation to land the pacey winger.
The 22-year-old forward arrived at the Old Trafford from AS Monaco back in 2015 for a reported fee of £57.6 million. But, ever since Jose Mourinho took charge of the team, the Frenchman struggled to find the right rhythm, often being benched by the Portuguese tactician.
Lack of self-confidence and irregular first-team football have almost seen Anthony leaving the ranks of the Premier League giants several times in the past year or so.
During the summer transfer window, the media all across England reported Manchester United would like to part company with the France international, with Chelsea, Juventus, and Bayern Munich all looked to wrap up the deal.
However, the player has opted to remain at the Old Trafford eventually and fight for his place in the starting eleven.
Anthony has been accused of undermining Jose Mourinho along with his fellow international colleague Paul Pogba, who has also entered a public dispute with the Portuguese manager.
Nevertheless, the French star has reached out to the media to explain he has no arguments with his coach. He has also announced his intention to extend his current contract with the Red Devils regardless of who is going to lead the team from the touchline next season.
Furthermore, according to The Express, the former Real Madrid boss has decided to hand the young Frenchman a more prominent role after his outstanding performances over the past couple of months.
Having scored six goals in nine Premier League outings, Anthony has ‘saved’ Mourinho’s job on multiple occasions, as he is now looking forward to becoming a leader of this Man Utd team.
The Red Devils are on their way to advance to the Champions League knockout stage, while they are steadily closing the gap on the Premier League’s top-5 teams.
As United’s most consistent, forward this season, Anthony Martial is expecting to pen a new deal and help the Premier League giants to return to their glory days.
