Official: Man Utd sign Martial from Monaco

Anthony Martial looks set to be the only major signing Manchester United make on deadline day.

The Red Devils confirmed the move early Tuesday evening, after the story initially broke days prior.

“I’m so excited to join United,” says Martial. “I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League and look forward to meeting my team-mates.”

Manager Louis van Gaal also gave his thoughts on his newest signing to the official Manchester United media team:

” Anthony is a talented young forward with great potential. I believe this is the club for him to continue his development.”

United have been linked with a number of stars in the last few weeks, but Press Association Sport understands Martial is likely to be the only player who signs for the club before Tuesday’s 6pm deadline.

United agreed a fee of £36million for the 19-year-old Monaco striker on Monday. Martial was allowed to leave France’s training camp to travel to Carrington for a medical that same day.

Martial becomes the most expensive teenager in football history, replacing Luke Shaw, who signed for United for a fee that could rise to just over £30million last summer.
