Anthony Martial has renewed his contract with Manchester United until 2024.

The Frenchman whose initial contract was set to expire at the end of next season put pen to paper earlier today to keep him at the club for another five years with the option to extend the contract for another year.

The 23-year-old was repeatedly linked with a move away from United last summer and was reportedly unhappy under former manager, Jose Mourinho.

But there seems to be a turnaround since the appointment of Solskjaer, which has ultimately led to the player renewing his contract.

After signing the contract, Martial told the club website:

“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.”

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.”

Martial has scored 46 goals for United in 162 appearances since making his debut for the club against Liverpool in September 2015.
