DONE DEAL: Man United confirm new contract for attacking sensation with £70k-weekly wage increase

France international attacker Anthony Martial is allegedly prepared to sign a new contract at Premier League giant Manchester United, which will see the forward commit his playing future to the side for five years.

The 23-year-old forward joined the English club from Ligue 1 side Monaco back in 2015, and has since played more than 150 matches for the side while lifting an FA Cup, League Cup and UEFA Europa League.

However, Martial has struggled throughout his playing time at the club to permanently seal his spot in the starting XI, particularly under Portuguese tactician Jose Mourinho prior to his exit last month.

Considering that, question marks were heavily raised over whether or not Martial would have a prominent position to play for Manchester United, including the fact that his present deal runs at the end of this campaign, albeit Man United have an option to elongate for another 12 months, it had led to several doubts over his future at the club as cited by the Independent a year ago.

According to a report by British outlet Metro though, through RMC Sport, it’s been claimed that Anthony Martial is on the verge of penning another five-year deal with the Red Devils, which will see his weekly pay rise by £70,000-weekly, as he is being tipped to bank £190,000-weekly with his fresh contract.

Only time will tell if a formal announcement follows very soon, but for now it looks as though the France international is heading towards committing his long-term future to the Manchester club, as opposed to heading closer to a departure.

Considering he quality that Marital can bring to the table at Manchester United, that will certainly be good music to the ears of all Red Devil fans around the world as along with the likes of England international forward Marcus Rashford, Belgium international striker Romelu Lukaku and youngster Jesse Lingard, he undoubtedly has a spot to be an integral part of Manchester United’s long-term future in the frontnline.
