Matt Upson discusses Anthony Martial’s potential new deal and the impact of the ‘feelgood factor’ at Manchester United

Matt Upson thinks Anthony Martial can be “the future” for Manchester United and the “feelgood factor” around the club has led to him nearly agreeing a new deal.

Martial is close to reaching an agreement with Manchester United over a new five-year contract, according to Sky Sports News.

Martial has been a regular starter under new United manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, and former England defender Upson thinks the change in boss has had a positive impact on the 23-year-old.

“I think the feelgood factor around Manchester United has definitely helped these contract talks develop,” he said.

“Since Jose Mourinho left the club there has been a completely different feeling in the dressing room and all around the club.

“It’s very positive for him. It’s an amazing club to play for and the fact he has been playing a bit more central or up front in a two under Solskjaer has really helped him.

“It is a signal for me that they are moving forward and, especially with Marcus Rashford there, those two could be the future in that centre-forward position for them.”

Former United boss Jose Mourinho was reportedly willing to part with Martial last summer.

Upson added: “He was indifferent with Mourinho, like a lot of the players were, but if they get something consistent from him and he’s happy then they have a really good player.

“It is definitely good for Anthony Martial and for Manchester United.”

Manchester United will be looking for a seventh straight win under Solskjaer when they host Brighton on Saturday.
