What a couple of months it has been for Manchester United Football Club. Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has reinstalled that belief and confidence, with the Red Devils looking like the Red Devils of old.
Now, it looks as though United fans are to get a huge off-field lift, too… According to the usually reliable Telegraph, Anthony Martial is set to sign a new long-term deal at Old Trafford within the next 48 hours.
Apparently, the four-and-a-half-year deal will ensure Martial remains a Red Devil until at least 2024’s summer which is huge news for such a fan favourite.
Martial has been by far and away our most prolific goalscorer since arriving at the Theatre of Dreams, and to ensure that we tie him down for his best years is essential.
He clearly wants to be here and I believe the only reason he is yet to commit was down to Jose Mourinho. It just goes to show how bad things got under the self-proclaimed Special One towards the end of his tenure and it will reinforce the belief that United did make the right decision in letting him go.
As for Martial, I cannot wait to see that photo of him, pen-in-hand, all-smiles next to Solskjaer.
