Official: Anthony Martial signs a new long-term deal at Man United

Manchester United have announced that Anthony Martial has signed a new five-and-a-half-year contract.

The 23-year-old striker’s future at Old Trafford had been in severe doubt for most of last year due to his expiring contract and, therefore, he had been linked with a number of high-profile moves.

To avoid losing him for nothing at the end of the season, United triggered a clause they had in Martial’s deal to extend his stay by another 12 months in December.

But hopes of a fresh deal weren’t high at the time with neither Marital or his representatives giving anything away across the last few months.

However, under interim coach Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, Martial has featured regularly and appears to have had a change of heart after previously turning down a contract offer due to his difficult relationship with Jose Mourinho.
