Manchester United Football Club have made the deadline day swoop to secure the signature of Anthony Martial from AS Monaco, with the 19-year old costing the club a hefty £36million in transfer fees. Martial has signed a four-year contract at the club, with the option for a further year.
Shortly after the deal was announced it was confirmed that Martial would wear the famous number nine jersey that has been vacant since Radamel Falcao left Old Trafford after a miserable season for the Columbian international.
Anthony Martial surely has big shoes to fill, with previous wearers of the famous Manchester United number nine including the likes of Sir Bobby Charlton and Andy Cole.
Hopefully the young Frenchman can come in and really hit the ground running, starting with a cameo performance at Old Trafford against Liverpool after the international break.
