The 19-year-old was always expected to return to France on Tuesday morning having been in Manchester on Monday and as long as his medical went through without a problem, United will be ready to make an announcement in the coming hours.
Martial has been lauded by lots as the ‘new Thierry Henry’ so there is lots of hype going on about him and that hysteria will only increase after the deal is announced by United.
The fee for Martial is causing confusion among fans as to whether it is £36m as stated in some of the British media or the astronomical €80m quoted by the French media but it is largely irrelevant, so long as the deal for him is pushed through.
Martial will be an excellent start to deadline day for United but if James Wilson leaves on loan then surely at least one more striker will be coming to the club today. It’s set to be a very busy one for United.
