Manchester United trigger one-year extension to Anthony Martial's contract

Manchester United trigger one-year extension to Anthony Martial's contract”

Martial's contract was due to expire next summer, but United have activated a one-year extension clause which will keep the 23-year-old at the club until at least 2020.

Manchester United have automatically extended Anthony Martial's contract through to the end of the 2019-20 season but the player's agent remains "very pessimistic" about a longer-term commitment to the English giants.

"A new caretaker manager will be appointed until the end of the current season, while the club conducts a thorough recruitment process for a new, full-time manager".

Martial's agent, Philippe Lamboley, claimed in the summer that the France global wanted to leave United following months of failed contract negotiations.

Manchester United has sacked Jose Mourinho as the manager of the football club.

RMC Sport now claims that United chose to trigger Martial's 12-month extension two months ago but opted against officially announcing the decision.

José Mourinho had been open to letting an unhappy Martial leave in the summer but made a decision to open talks over a five-year contract.

I am very pessimistic about a positive outcome of the discussions. "We are far from an agreement for the time being", he said.
