Anthony Martial's Man Utd future 'uncertain' after contract talks stall

United still have the option to extend his current contract - set to expire in 2019 - by a further year, but the French outlet have reported that Martial's representatives expected to be tabled a new and improved deal after his agent met with the club in December - but nothing arrived.

It seems that forward Anthony Martial is now stalling talks of a new contract, with interest for his services from Tottenham and Inter Milan doing rounds, who will look to sign the France worldwide in the upcoming transfer windows. However, with Martial finally finding his place in Jose Mourinho's side after a torrid last season, things looked to get better this season before the Chilean walked in.

He has made 37 appearances in all competitions this season and scored 11 goals.

Martial has fallen out of favour in recent times with Mourinho replacing him with Alexis Sanchez, who signed from Arsenal last month.

The report then goes on to suggest Spurs are keen on the player, along with Inter Milan and Real Madrid, if Gareth Bale is to head to Old Trafford.

Could Martial soon be turning up in white?

The forward has struggled for regular game time this year and has had to compete with Marcus Rashford, with both players preferring to play down the left of United's attack.

It is said to have "astonished" the France global who feels it shows a lack of recognition for what he can offer the club, resulting in him weighing up his future options which has seen him stall a purchase for a new house in Manchester.

Martial now has little under 18 months left on his current deal with Manchester United, who have the option to extend the contract by one year.

However, now with Alexis Sanchez's arrival at the club, Manchester United have got an experienced and proven goalscorer, with the Chilean hitting double figures for the Gunners in every season since his arrival in the English league.

Tottenham would likely have to match that fee if they wanted to bring in Martial this summer, but he could be a vital missing cog in their hunt for silverware in this golden era.
