Anthony Martial drops contract hint after Manchester Uniteds draw with Chelsea
Anthony Martial sent Manchester United fans into meltdown with a contract hint on Instagram following his heroics in the sides 2-2 draw with Chelsea.
The Frenchman cancelled out Antonio Rudigers header just after half time before giving Jose Mourinhos men the lead in the 73rd minute at Stamford Bridge.
United appeared on course to come away with three points from the clash but Ross Barkley found an equaliser for Maurizio Sarris side at the death.
While Martial was heavily linked with a move away from United in the summer, Metro.co.uk understands that the forward is on the verge of signing a new five-year deal at Old Trafford.
And following Uniteds draw, the France international dropped a massive hint over his future on his social media pages with a photograph showing him pointing at the clubs crest.
Ready to sign the contract, Tony?
Mourinho hailed Martial in the aftermath of the Frenchmans double at Stamford Bridge.
Anthony Martial is improving, he is doing different things than before, the Portuguese said.
He is a more complete player than before but he needs to improve. He has a huge talent and he wants it, which is a good thing. The team as a team was really good.
A fantastic match, a very undeserved result for us but that is football. We were the best team, even in the first half when we were losing.
We were in control, tactically. The result is really unfair for us.
We conceded from two set-pieces, but that is a way to score goals and you have to be able to defend against that.
