Anthony Martial‘s move to Manchester United has accelerated rapidly over the last 12 hours to the point where he is now on the verge of being announced as a new player.
The 19-year-old AS Monaco striker arrived at Carrington earlier this afternoon and the latest from RMC in France, who have been first to the news regarding Martial since initially reporting the bid last night, say he has now passed his medical.
So, all that stands in the way of Martial being confirmed by Man United is an agreement between the clubs, which is reported to have been reached, so everything looks to be in place for an official announcement.
Martial is not the established, experienced striker who United fans had expected to see arrive this summer after the departures of Robin van Persie, Radamel Falcao and now Javier Hernandez, but he is an exciting nonetheless.
We’ll bring you official comments and pictures of Martial being unveiled as a United player as soon as United release them.
