HI there,

This normally indicates a problem with the starter motor and not the battery. I do understand the slow cranking and with the corrosion it would seem like the battery is the problem. However if you get just the single click it's usually the starter. If you cleaned up the cable when you installed the new battery, then I would try to jump start the car. If it starts, have the new battery tested for charge. It might be low if it sat on the shelf a long time. If you still get the single click, then I would replace the starter.
