Martial signs new United deal to 2024

Anthony Martial has signed a new long-term deal keeping him at Manchester United until at least 2024, the club has announced.

The 23-year-old had faced an uncertain future at the club under previous manager Jose Mourinho, with some reports suggesting that he had been looking around for a new club earlier in the campaign.

Following Mourinho’s dismissal and Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s appointment just before Christmas, Martial is said to have decided to make a u-turn and engaged in fresh talks with the United hierarchy.

The Frenchman’s new deal will see him stay at Old Trafford until June 2024, with the option for the club to extend by a further year.

“I am loving my time at this club,” Martial told the United 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 added: “Anthony is one of those naturally gifted players that any coach would love to work with. For a young man, he has a good footballing brain which, when coupled with his exceptional talent, makes for a player with an exciting future ahead of him. This is the perfect club for Anthony to progress his development as a
top-class forward and we are all delighted he has signed a long-term deal.”
