Manchester United have officially announced the signing of Anthony Martial from AS Monaco.
The 19-year-old French youngster joins on a four-year contract with the option to extend for a further year.
Martial becomes the sixth major signing by Louis van Gaal this summer and injects some much needed pace and attacking flair into Man United’s attack which has looked cumbersome so far this season.
There is a real buzz over the signing of Martial but fans are making sure they manage their expectations because he is only 19. However, he will be expected to hit the ground running at Old Trafford and hopefully get among the goals straight away.
With less than an hour left in the current transfer window, United are not expected to complete any more signings but the arrival of Martian is certainly going to improve the attacking options van Gaal as at his disposal.
Martian is likely to be available for United’s next game which is at home to Liverpool after the international break.
