Manchester United are reportedly ready to offer Anthony Martial a new five-year deal worth £45m to reward his recent good form.

Manchester United are reportedly preparing a new five-year contract offer worth £45m for winger Anthony Martial.

Martial's current contract expires at the end of this season, although United do have the option to extend it for a further 12 months should no new agreement be reached before that.

The French winger looked set to leave Old Trafford during the summer having missed out on France's World Cup squad due to a lack of first-team football, but the United board are understood to have convinced Jose Mourinho to keep him at the club.

Martial has since worked his way back into the first-team plans and has scored five goals in his last four Premier League games - form which will reportedly earn him a bumper new contract.

The 22-year-old is now willing to stay at the club despite recently rejecting a deal worth £160,000 a week, and United are expected to return with improved terms of around £190,000 a week over five years.

Negotiations over the new offer could begin this week and United are hopeful that they can wrap a deal up before Christmas, despite interest from their Champions League Group H rivals Juventus.
