Anthony Martial who a few weeks ago was discussing his exit from Manchester United for lack of playing time, has signed a new £250,000-a-week-wage contract which will keep him at the club until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.
Anthony Martial who is just 23 and with 162 appearances and 46 goals really did not enjoy his football under former manager, Jose Mourinho and Ole is looking to change all that with this new contract.
After his new contract, Anthony Martial had this to say:
“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 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.”
