Nine years ago, the Frenchman joined United from Monaco as an adolescent for an initial £36 million; if certain add-ons were fulfilled, that amount would increase to £58 million.

 

Martial has accumulated 90 goals in 317 appearances for the club following a stretch of underachievement and inconsistent play.The former Lyon player has scored just twice across all competitions this season, and rumors circulated that the 28-year-old was close to signing another contract.

 

Just now, United officially finalized contract extensions with players including Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Hannibal Mejbri, and Victor Lindelof.

 

talkSPORT reports, however, that the Red Devils, who currently have football operations under the direction of Sir Jim Ratcliffe, will not attempt to offer Martial a new contract.

 

Martial’s contract expires in the summer; therefore, he will likely depart without a written consent, unless an offer is made during the January transfer window.Martial signed his final five-year contract in 2019 under the leadership of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.

 

Upon committing his signature, he still had six months remaining, and the agreement included the provision for a one-year extension to be activated in 2025.United has no intention of continuing discussions with Martial’s representatives, contrary to recent remarks by Erik ten Hag to the contrary; a recurrence of past events is not anticipated.Likewise, the club is not exercising Raphael Varane’s one-year extension option; however, they remain optimistic about the possibility of negotiating new terms with the World Cup champion.

 

He can now, nevertheless, negotiate with foreign clubs regarding a free transfer.

 

In his pre-Wigan press conference, Ten Hag stated, “We are in discussion with Rapha Varane and Anthony Martial, and we have activated the options on Aaron Wan-Bissaka, Victor Lindelof, and Hannibal.”When asked how the discussions were progressing, he responded, “I believe the club and the player are having an internal discussion.”
