Anthony Martial is ‘ready to turn down Juventus, Paris Saint-Germain and Bayern Munich and sign a new contract at Manchester United.’
The French striker has been linked with a number of leading European clubs after his relationship with United manager Jose Mourinho became strained.
Martial had left United’s pre-season tour of the United States to return to Paris for the birth of his son, leading to criticism from Mourinho that he didn’t return quickly enough.

That came after Martial, 22, fell down the pecking order at Old Trafford following the signing of Alexis Sanchez from Arsenal last January.
But despite signals that Martial was ready to leave, United are now increasingly confident he will commit to a new five-year contract, according to ESPN FC.
His current contract expires in 2020 though a one-year extension would be triggered if negotiations for a new deal fail.
