Feeling the love! Arsenal, Spurs target Martial opens up after signing Man United contract
Arsenal and Tottenham target Anthony Martial has signed a deal with Manchester United until June 2024.
Martial had been heavily criticised by ex-boss Jose Mourinho, and a number of former players, for his inability to put in decent performances on a weekly basis, with the Frenchman going missing at times when he is needed most.
And that has led to speculation that he could head to the likes of Arsenal, Spurs, PSG or Juventus in the next transfer window, with reports he has become unsettled with life at Old Trafford.
However, he has been reinvented since the arrival of Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and is very happy in his surroundings, so despite all the transfer speculation, he is now delighted with the deal he has agreed with the Red Devils.
Martial said on the Sky Sports 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.”
Here is what we think.
Martial is starting to fulfil his potential at Old Trafford and it will be great news for many United fans to see him commit his long-term future to the club, as himself and Marcus Rashford could form a deadly partnership at Old Trafford.
