Anthony Martial signs new five-year contract with Manchester United

Share

Another positive for United was Anthony Martial signing a contract extension until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year, on transfer deadline day.

Ole Gunnar Solskjaer will drop both Romelu Lukaku and Juan Mata from the starting XI for Manchester United's visit to Leicester City in the Premier League this Sunday.

He has scored twice and assisted a further goal in six games under Solskjaer, while his buildup play has improved considerably.

Now, I know what you're thinking, Ronaldo was a right-midfielder for his first few years at the club, therefore his stats will not represent the goal-scoring machine he has become.

Doctors say the disease spreads so quickly because it can linger for hours after an infected person has left the room. Ninety percent of people exposed to measles who have not been vaccinated will get it, health officials said.

"You need a run of games to express yourself and now he's getting that, he can beat a man, score goals, bring excitement for the fans and that's the most important thing".

Martial looked close to leaving United in the summer after slipping down the pecking order following Alexis Sanchez's arrival and missing out on a place in France's World Cup squad.

He struggled to prosper under the rigid philosophies of Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho, but the attacking mindset of Solskjaer, a former striker who enjoyed such success during his time as a player with the Red Devils, could see him blossom in the coming months (and potentially years if the current interim boss gets the gig full-time).

"Well, of course, I speak about my experience at this club, what he can achieve at this club because I think I can achieve a lot", Solskjaer said.

He said: "I think that he is changing". "So we need to improve". I want first of all to change the mentality. If you want the last pass he is not adapted.

"It's a confirmation that we are happy with him and we believe in him he's got fantastic potential", the scorer of the 1999 Champions final victor explained.

Neville believes retaining Martial was the best decision for United, but feels they should now be demanding a considerable return on their sizeable show of faith. "I made my career here, it was easy to sell the club to Anthony but he's been here for many years so he knows what we're capable of".

"You talk about Cristiano's career, what he's made, how he's got there", said Solskjaer. Anthony has done some rehab work, so he will try a session today.

"He's had some ups and downs at the club, he's been top scorer, he's been developing", said Solskjaer. "I certainly believe in him".
