Manchester United are ready to reward Anthony Martial for his recent form with a five-year contract worth £190,000-a-week, according to a report in England.

Martial has scored in four consecutive Premier League games for the first time, with his recent performances earning United's Player of the Month award for October.

Martial won the last of his 18 caps in a friendly against Russian Federation, while missing the successful World Cup campaign in Russian Federation this summer, Xinhua reported on Thursday.

And speaking on Martial's U-turn at the club, Mourinho has revealed he set a hard path for his player in order for him to realise his "phenomenal talent".

"We're still talking about a young player who, I hope, is in the process of gaining a certain maturity", Deschamps told reporters.

Deschamps said in a press conference: "Anthony has played for a while in the France team and has also experienced some hard times".

The France worldwide scored 17 times in his debut campaign in the Premier League after Martial netted on his debut in Manchester United's 3-1 win over bitter rivals Liverpool FC in September 2015.

And France boss Didier Deschamps agrees with Mourinho that Martial's rough patches have made him a better player.

Martial's days at Old Trafford seemed numbered after he was criticised by Jose Mourinho and fined by the club for taking an extended leave of absence from United's summer training camp in the United States, due to the birth of his child.

The same article claims that the 22-year-old recently rejected a deal estimated to be worth £160,000-a-week but the former Lyon forward wants to remain at Manchester United.

He will be hoping to add to his 18 worldwide caps in Rotterdam next Friday and against Uruguay at the Stade de France on November 20.
