Will Martial sign a new deal?
Just a few weeks ago, plenty were speculating about Martial’s ongoing future at Old Trafford.
Back in the summer rumours spilled out that Martial had rejected a 5-year contract offer from Man United.
Many are now hoping that the French international can put pen to paper on a new deal.
For the record, the 22-year-old is out of contract in Manchester at the end of the season.
