Anthony Martial turns down new contract extension as Juventus show interest


Anthony Martial could be heading to Italy as he has reportedly turned down a new contract offer from Manchester United.

Martial, 22, current deal runs until the summer of 2019, but he is said to have refused to extend that over his lack of playing time, according to French outlet RMC Sport.

RMC Sport claim United boss Mourinho offered Martial a new five-year deal, but was knocked-back by the disgruntled forward.

Juventus are actively monitoring his situation at Manchester United, and willing to fight Paris Saint-Germain and Atletico Madrid for the French international’s signature if he becomes available in the summer.

The former Monaco has performed inconsistently this season, although that has partially been down to intermittent use, and he hasn’t appeared for United since the 2-0 FA Cup win over Brighton and Hove Albion back in March.

Mourinho did consider letting Martial go to Inter in the summer in exchange for Ivan Perisic, but ultimately decided not to.

Martial has scored 11 goals and ten assists, but has seen ex-Arsenal ace Sanchez eat into his minutes, with the France ace not scoring since January.
