France international Anthony Martial has reportedly decided to turn down a contract extension at Manchester United in order to pursue a fresh challenge elsewhere.



According to RMC Sport, the Frenchman has no plans of extending his contract beyond the summer of 2019 after having dropped down the pecking order at Old Trafford.

Martial was more of a regular under Jose Mourinho during the first six months of the season, whilst commanding a role on the left side of the Red Devils attack.

However, since the arrival of Alexis Sanchez, the Frenchman has been limited to just two league starts whilst failing to make an appearance altogether during the recent Manchester derby.

As a result, his relationship with Mourinho appears to have turned sour, and there are suggestions that he could push through an exit with Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain, Arsenal and Tottenham Hotspur credited with an interest in his services.

Despite a stop-start season, Martial has contributed 11 goals and a further 10 assists across all competitions, and this record is only bettered by Romelu Lukaku in a United shirt this term.
