Martial to use delay tactics

Manchester United midfdielder has decided to delay talks concerning his future at the club until he knows the status of manager Jose Mourinho.

Martial and Mourinho have not seen eye to eye after the French winger was fined after going AWOL for the birth of his son. Now, with just a year remaining on his current contract, Martial is unwilling to commit to the club and sign a new deal while out of favour under Mourinho, according to The Sun.

The 22-year-old forward has made just one Premier League appearance this season against Brighton and was subbed on the hour mark as United fell to a 3-2 defeat. According to the newspaper, Martial has held discussions over fresh terms since May but is no closer to putting pen to paper.

The club have the option of extending his deal by another year until 2020 but reports suggest the player is currently unhappy with such a lacking of playing time at Old Trafford.
