Manchester United had cause for deadline day celebration as Anthony Martial penned a long-term contract.
Whilst there were no new arrivals at Old Trafford in January, the news they’ve tied down one of their prized assets until 2024 is a major boost.
The Red Devils were at risk of losing Martial in the summer, with his agent stating he was “pessimistic” about agreeing a new deal before the sacking of Jose Mourinho.
But their revival under Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has seemingly made the former Monaco man reconsider as he put pen to paper on a bumper new deal.
Fans were delighted with the news – but one eagle-eyed supporter noticed a hilarious detail in the “contract” being signed in United’s announcement picture.
Anthony Gayle tweeted zoomed in versions of the image of Solskjaear with Martial as he “signed” his deal.
And it showed the paper used for the posed photo was simply filled with a collection of random words and letters that made no sense.
“Can anyone get me an administration job at @ManUtd? Must have experience in Microsoft Word and fake contract creations’,” he tweeted.
The real contract was presumably penned away from the cameras, and Martial is delighted to secure his United future.
“I am loving my time at this club,” Martial said.
“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 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.”
