Anthony Martial Rejects January Temptations Amidst Contract Riddle 

Manchester United's striker future hangs by a thread

In the midst of contract uncertainty, Manchester United striker Anthony Martial has reportedly declined several offers and is not looking to leave during the January transfer window. The Frenchman’s contract at Old Trafford is set to expire in June, and the club has opted not to extend it by an additional 12 months.

While Manchester United is open to offers for Martial, clubs like Fenerbahce and Marseille, along with Saudi Pro League teams, have shown interest. However, Martial, 28, has expressed no interest in a mid-season departure and plans to finish the current season at Old Trafford.

Recent talks between Manchester United, Martial, and his agent hint that a new deal is unlikely, pointing towards a potential free transfer for the forward at the end of the campaign. Martial, who joined Manchester United from Monaco in 2015, has made 317 appearances for the club, scoring 90 goals and providing 55 assists.

Despite featuring regularly this season, Martial has struggled to find the back of the net, scoring only two goals and providing two assists in 19 appearances across all competitions. His limited contribution has raised questions about his role under manager Erik ten Hag, especially as he has been absent from the last six matches due to illness.

As Manchester United prepares for the upcoming Premier League clash with Tottenham Hotspur, it remains uncertain whether Martial will be included in the squad. The striker, who faced fitness challenges under Ten Hag’s tenure, demonstrated his goal-scoring prowess in the 2019-20 season but has faced a dip in form since.
