The French forward has extended his contract to 2024.
Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s arrival at United has brought several positives. The winning streak is one of them. A major positive was the contract extension of Anthony Martial. Anthony Martial, whose contract was set to expire at the end of the next season has extended his contract to 2024. Here are the astronomical wages that he’ll be earning.
Manchester United forward Anthony Martial will earn £250k a week as part of his new five-and-a-half-year contract that he signed at Old Trafford on Thursday. Martial finally put months of speculation surrounding his future to bed by putting pen to paper with United. It was previously believed to be looking for exit after locking horns with former head coach José Mourinho. Although the ink on Martial’s contract isn’t even dry yet, Sky Sports have revealed that the 23-year-old’s wages almost increased fourfold as part of his new long-term deal.
Martial was earning £75k a week as part of his last contract with the club. He signed the contract upon joining the club from AS Monaco in 2015. Now, the Frenchman will earn a quarter of a million every week. Although he is still behind Alexis Sánchez and Paul Pogba in the club’s top earners list. Martial’s new deal runs until 2024. But just like with his last contract, Manchester United can extend the deal by an extra year thanks to a clause.
Despite starting the new season with what felt like half of their squad less than a year away from leaving Old Trafford on a free transfer, Manchester United now just have a handful of players who could walk away at the end of the campaign.
Considering Martial’s form and age, it was important for Manchester United to extend his contract. Having appeared to be heading for the exits at one stage under Jose Mourinho. A highly-rated frontman has committed to fresh terms at Old Trafford. Martial has been performing good this season.
Martial has played 104 Premier League games for United. Martial has scored 10 more than when Ronaldo had played the same amount, with 32.
