Gary Neville Not Surprised Martial Turned Down New United Contract
The winger’s contact has been a talking point as it winds down, with many debating the French international’s value to the team.
At just 22 years old, Martial’s potential continues to shine through on some occasions, although his inability to provide consistently strong performance remains an issue.
Martial’s contract is set to expire this summer, although Manchester United has a one-year option that the club can renew.
The winger has appeared 146 times for the club since moving from Monaco in 2015, but Neville isn’t surprised to see him turn down a new deal as his contract winds down.
“I think it’s probably the general answer of everybody that gets offered a new contract nowadays, that they turn a new one down,” Neville wrote in his column on Sky Sports.
“He probably wants the same level of money some of the other players in the squad are on, he is probably looking at his options externally.
“From that point of view, at this moment in time, it doesn’t surprise me at all that he’s turned it down.”
