Manchester United Defy Jose Mourinho, Offer Anthony Martial 5-Year Deal

After being linked with a move away to Real Madrid, Chelsea and Spurs all summer, and after speculation that Jose Mourinho wanted him sold, Anthony Martial is close to signing a new five-year deal with Manchester United, reports The Times.

Mourinho was ready to offload Martial this summer but any such move was vetoed by Ed Woodward, United’s executive vice-chairman.

Telegraph reports that the club wants to keep Martial, regardless of how Mourinho feels about the Frenchman, in a move that will cast further doubts over the manager’s future ahead of Sunday’s crunch game against Burnley at Turf Moor.

IT’S OFFICIAL: Mourinho’s Manchester United Are In Crisis!

Bear in mind that Woodward refused to sanction moves for two Mourinho transfer targets this summer – Belgium  defender Toby Alderweireld from Tottenham Hotspur or Leicester City and England centre-half Harry Maguire – much to the manager’s frustration.

Mourinho no longer has control over transfer matters and the club’s willingness to give a lucrative new contract to a player he does not wish to keep further undermines his position.
