The rift at Manchester United is taking another direction as Anthony Martial’s stay-back demand becomes a hard nut-to-crack.
Anthony Jaron Martial, born 5th Decemeber 1995, has recently disclosed what will ensure that he is extending his relationship with Manchester United.
Anthony’s contract will be lifeless by the end of the season and Manchester United are already making plans to ensure that the 2015 Golden Boy award winner, Martial renews his contract with the Red Devils.
Martial Joined Manchester United 3 years ago for 58million euro (36 million euro was initially paid as an upfront) which was actually the highest paid for a teenage player.
Anthony was having a good time at Old Trafford till Arsenal former striker, Alexis Sanchez arrived.
Sanchez’s arrival assured Martial of the bench, and thereby reducing the number of goals he could net in over a given period of time.
An escape route has finally arrived for Martial and it seems that he might be taking it provided his demands are not met.
According to Corriere dello Sport, the player has demanded that for him to stay, the manager, Jose Mourinho must go.
The French footballer might have demanded this due to some personal issues which was not stated but the fact remains that he offered to prolong his relationship with the team, if only Jose will be shown the door at the end of the season.
On the other hand, Jose seems to be having a good time at Old Trafford as claimed by the team that they are happy with the Portugese.
This is really a test for the team, who do they really love. Jose or Anthony?
Time will tell, as we await the January transfer window to know if Martial will actually renew his contract or leave the team, despite the fact some of Manchester United fans have been begging Martial on his instagram page, to renew his contract with the club.
