Anthony Martial rejected fellow Premier League club to join Manchester United

Manchester United Football Club paid big-money to bring Anthony Martial to Old Trafford on transfer deadline day, paying a huge £38million to lure the little-known 19-year old to Manchester.

The Manchester Evening News have today reported that Chelsea were also in for Martial, but the player himself rejected a move to London in order to fulfil his dream of joining Manchester United.

He has proven to be an instant hit at his current side, after scoring a stunning debut goal against Liverpool to kick things off in real style. Martial then backed that up with an excellent brace away at Southampton, proving just how good of a finisher he is.

His all round game has been the most impressive thing though, he just doesn’t seem to give the ball up that often and he is proving to be a constant thorn in the side of any defenders. Hopefully he can continue that today against a stern Arsenal defence.
