Man United Got Fans Buzzing at the News of Martial’s Contract Extension
Man United have got their fans buzzing following the announcement of Anthony Martial signing a contract extension with the club making him stay till 2024.
Just the news the fans had longed for, the United winger could have left the club this winter transfer had Jose Mourinho survived still being the club’s manager. But he had found his feet under caretaker manager, Ole Solskjaer who he described as the man who has motivated and brought the best out of him since he took over.
Martial was bought from Monaco by former manager, Louis Van Gaal in 2015 in a record fee of 52m pounds spent on a teenager, but Martial had since lived up to expectation and became fans favourite, helping his team win the FA Cup, Carabao Cup and Europa league during his first three years at the club.
The news of his contract extension has made fans happy and they hoped for similar move for fancied goal keeper, David De Gea and energetic midfield Ander Herrera.
