Manchester United winger Anthony Martial has signed a new five-year contract with the club on deadline day, after months of negotiations and transfer speculation.
The Frenchman rejected an extension offer back in October last year, amid widespread reports he was unhappy with his situation at the club under former boss Jose Mourinho.
His previous deal was due to expire at the end of the 2018-19 campaign, but United triggered a one-year extension and continued talks over a more permanent arrangement.
Martial has contributed 10 goals and one assist in 25 appearances across all competitions for the Red Devils this term and he is one of the players to have directly benefitted from the arrival of caretaker boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
After embarking on a nine-match unbeaten streak under the Norwegian, Martial has decided to pledge his long-term future to the club until 2024, in a major boost for the team ahead of a crucial period of fixtures.
Speaking after the announcement was made on Thursday, Martial, whose new deal includes an option for a further year, stated: “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.”
