Anthony Martial’s contract renewal is complete, but at the time, there was one thing missing; the photo of him putting pen to paper sitting alongside Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
Thankfully, Manchester United’s Instagram account have us covered! They’ve clearly saved the photo to go with the caption below, and boy doesn’t it feel good to have the talented Frenchman tied down to a new contract until 2024?
Martial has been a fan favourite ever since day one. From that iconic moment against Liverpool on his debut, to scoring goals aplenty while playing on the wing this season, the #11 has always made a hugely positive impact.
To hear that we’ve now got him for the next four-and-a-half seasons, plus the option for an extra year, is just brilliant. Under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer, the Frenchman will only improve. He’s learning from one of the best goalscorers in club history and if Martial goes on to have half the career that his manager does, it’ll be a hugely successful one.
Hopefully, he’s back in the team when Unied take on Leicester City this weekend and he can mark the occasion with a goal and a huge three points!
