Shaw wages key as Man Utd made to sweat over Martial deal

Manchester United will be forced to up their offer if they want to tie a star winger down to a new deal, a report claims.

The French winger started against Chelsea – his fourth start of the season in the Premier League – and scored twice for United in a confident performance.

RMC Sport recently claimed that the 22-year-old is ready to extend his United contract, after recently admitting that relations between himself and Jose Mourinho were never as bad as had been portrayed in the media.

However, according to the Evening Standard, Martial has rejected United’s most recent offer – and the wages one of his team-mates receives is instrumental in his decision.

Their report claims that representatives of the former Monaco man see Luke Shaw’s recent new deal as a benchmark, and they will not be happy to accept less.

Ed Woodward meanwhile is prepared to trigger a 12-month clause in Martial’s current contract as an insurance plan, should the two parties not reach an agreement soon.
