After Anthony Martial confirmed his desire to stay at Man Utd, we take a look back at his greatest goals in the Premier League
Anthony Martial wants to stay at Manchester United until the summer and is not interested in a move away from Old Trafford this month.
Martial has rejected interest from Marseille, Fenerbahce and the Saudi Arabian Premier League and intends to stay and fight for his place in Erik ten Hag’s team.
United have held talks with the player and his agent about his future. As it stands, they are unlikely to trigger the one-year option in Martial’s contract.

United triggered the one-year option in Hannibal’s contract and will assess his longer-term future in the summer.
Hannibal has started four games in all competitions this season and is likely to find minutes even more limited as Casemiro and Mason Mount are close to returns.
