Manchester United have today confirmed that Anthony Martial has extended his contract with the club until 2024. Given that Jose Mourinho was ready to sell the Frenchman in the summer, the u-turn has been fairly incredible and welcomed by our fans.
Only Paul Pogba, who has been on penalty taking duty this season, has scored more league goals for us than Martial.
Our forward has expressed his happiness at extending his contract at the club.
I am loving my time at this club. 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.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has sung Martial’s praises and talked of his delight over the forward lengthening his stay in Manchester.
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.
