Manchester United sack Jose Mourinho

Despite triggering a one year extension clause in his contract, Anthony Martial and Manchester United are some ways apart from striking a new deal says his agent.

"I am very pessimistic about discussions going positively", Lamboley told RMC Sport.

"They have already sent us offers that do not meet our expectations, starting at bases very far from our wishes. We are far from an agreement for the time being".

UN Climate conference finalises rules to implement Paris climate treaty
The 24th Conference of the Parties to the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change (COP24) took place on December 2-14. They refused to use the word "welcome" in association with the findings of the report.

Martial's agent, Philippe Lamboley, claimed in the summer that the France worldwide wanted to leave United following months of failed contract negotiations. It follows their decision to trigger a similar option in David De Gea's contract. Yet there is still no sign of Martial pledging his longer-term future to the club, with the player having started just nine league games this season.

Both Chelsea and Arsenal have been monitoring Martial's situation, but United's hierarchy refused to sell in the summer despite Jose Mourinho being open to letting the forward leave Old Trafford.

This season has proven to be another slog for his side, and the recent 3-1 defeat to bitter rivals Liverpool was the final nail in his coffin as the club's boss.
