Manchester United have decided to keep hold of Anthony Martial and trigger the extension clause in his contract, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Red Devils have decided to keep hold of the 22-year-old striker despite the speculation about his future this summer.

Martial has been linked with a move away from Old Trafford this summer and he has been touted as a possible target for the likes of Tottenham Hotspur.

Now though, it is being claimed in the same report that Manchester United are ready to trigger the extension clause in his contract to keep him at Old Trafford until the summer of 2020.

The same report says that there was a growing belief that Martial would be on his way out of Manchester United this summer, with Tottenham and Juventus both touted as possible destinations.

However, it is now being claimed that the Red Devils are likely to keep hold of Martial for the foreseeable future, despite his lack of playing time next season.

Manchester United will be aiming to challenge for the Premier League title next season as they look to try and win the trophy for the first time since Sir Alex Ferguson’s final campaign in charge back in 2013.
