French striker Anthony Martial looks set to leave Manchester United in the January transfer window.

Martial signed a five-year contract with United in 2019, a deal which included an option to extend it for an additional 12 months.

But United are not planning to active the option to extend the contract and the striker now looks set to leave the club already in January.

The 28-year-old is now closing in on a move to Fenerbahce, who are keen to take the striker on a permanent deal in January.

The Turkish outfit submitted a £7million bid for Martial earlier in the week and it is expected that United could be ready to let him leave.

Reports have previously also suggested that Martial could be set for a €10million move to Saudi Pro League club Al Ettifaq in January.
