Martial signs new United deal
Anthony Martial has committed his future to Manchester United after the forward signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract.
The France international has put pen to paper on a deal that runs until the summer of 2024 and there is also an option to extend it by a further 12 months.
Martial has certainly been an impressive performer during his time at Old Trafford, scoring 46 goals in 162 appearances since his debut against Liverpool in September 2015.
It hasn't always been plain sailing and earlier this season there was speculation he could leave the club due to reported tension in his relationship with former boss Jose Mourinho.
However, Martial has returned to top form following Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's arrival as interim manager and he has praised the Norwegian for having a positive impact on the team.
"I am loving my time at this club," Martial told the club website. "From the day I joined I have been made to feel part of the United family and I have been incredibly humbled and overwhelmed by the warmth and love of our fans, who continue to amaze me with their support.
"I would like to thank Ole and his coaching staff for their belief in me and for helping me to take my game to the next level. This club is all about winning trophies and I am sure the next piece of silverware is not that far away."
Solskjaer has also been speaking about Martial’s renewal, revealing that he feels the Frenchman has an exciting future ahead of him at Old Trafford.
"Anthony is one of those naturally gifted players that any coach would love to work with," Solskjaer said.
