Martial signs

Anthony Martial has signed a new five-year deal with Manchester United until 2024, worth £200,000-a-week.

The news was announced on the club's official website after rumours done the rounds on social media.

The exciting French winger appeared to be on the way out of the club at the start of the season under Jose Mourinho, but that has all changed in recent weeks.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer's impact has been massive and star goalkeeper David de Gea could be the next key player to follow suit with a contract extension.

Martial has been in sparkling form in 2018/19, scoring eight goals in 18 appearances in the Premier League.

The Frenchman perfectly fits the quick, counter-attacking style Solskjaer is trying to reimplement at the club.

After signing his new deal, Martial said: “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.”

Solskjaer will no doubt be buoyed by the news, as his positive impact continues to reap benefits at the club.

"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.”
