Manchester United are on the brink of landing one player on deadline day, as a £36million move for AS Monaco’s Anthony Martial looms. The played has had, and passed his Manchester United medical according to Sky Sports News, and now we’re just waiting for the official announcement from both clubs.
Whilst we’ve been waiting for that announcement a picture cropped up on social media, revealed Anthony Martial’s probable squad number for the upcoming season.
As you can see from the picture below it looks legit, and it shows that the 19-year old French striker will wear the #9 jersey for the club this season.
If a 19-year old coming for a record fee wasn’t already enough pressure for Martial, he now has to live up to the hype of some footballing legends like Sir Bobby Charlton and Andy Cole.
Hopefully Martial deals with that and hits the ground running. At this point in time he simply cannot do any worse than Wayne Rooney is at the moment…
