Man United's Anthony Martial Signs New Deal Until 2024

Forward Anthony Martial has signed a new contract at Manchester United until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.

The 23-year-old, who joined United from Monaco in September 2015 for £36m, has been in talks for a while. 

United's interim boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: 

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.

In June, Martial's agent said his player - who has scored eight Premier League goals this season - wanted to leave Old Trafford and it was known former boss Jose Mourinho was happy to sanction his departure. 

But United's hierarchy instead opened fresh negotiations and Martial said on Thursday: 

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.

Martial has started five times under Mourinho's successor Solskjaer, and scored after coming on as a substitute in the FA Cup win at Arsenal on Friday.
