Could Man United terminate Anthony Martial's contract? Answered

Manchester United have been rocked by the news of Anthony Martial's groin surgery that requires him to be out of action for at least the next 10 weeks.

Given his poor injury record, Martial is expected to take longer than that to recover fully. He's only appeared in 13 Premier League games this season, mostly off the bench.

In other words, it looks like Martial may not play for Man United again until his contract expires this summer. Considering he earns £250,000 a week, that's an expensive non-playing player to have on your books.

But why are the Red Devils simply not terminating Martial's contract as they did with Cristiano Ronaldo?

We saw a few of these queries from fans on social media as well as from our users. To clear it up, both parties (in this case Man United and Martial) need to agree to terminate his contract.

His agent has, unfortunately, confirmed that Martial is going nowhere this month and will see out his contract at Old Trafford. In Ronaldo's case, the Portuguese superstar himself wished to leave.

Thus, unless Martial and his camp are willing, Man United have their hands tied in this situation.
