The France international, whose existing contract was due to expire in the summer, has joined United from Monaco in September 2015 for £36m.
Martial, who had fallen out with Jose Mourinho, has made a big U-turn after his agent Philippe Lamboley told French TV station RMC the forward could leave the Premier League side.
A statement read on United official website: “Manchester United is delighted to announce that Anthony Martial has signed a new contract, which will keep him at the club until June 2024, with the option to extend for a further year.”
Anthony Martial said on Thursday after signing his new deal: “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.”
Today just got a whole lot better! 😄 #MUFC

United caretaker manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer said: “Anthony is one of those naturally gifted players that any coach would love to work with.”
“For a young man, he has a good footballing brain which, when coupled with his exceptional talent, makes for a player with an exciting future ahead of him.”
“This is the perfect club for Anthony to progress his development as a top-class forward and we are all delighted he has signed a long-term deal.”
Martial has missed his side’s 2-2 draw with Burnley on Tuesday night at Old Trafford after picking up a slight injury in training.
The Frenchman has scored 46 goals in 161 appearances since making his debut for the Red Devils against Liverpool in September 2015.
