Picture: Manchester United’s past and present all-smiles at France training

Manchester United made a huge £38million splurge when they signed Anthony Martial last summer, with Louis van Gaal taking a real gamble that certainly paid off. Now a United and France regular, the young man jetted off to take part in his national team’s training camp.

Whilst with the French side, Anthony Martial bumped into a former Manchester United fan favourite – Patrice Evra.

The left-back is arguably the best left-back the Premier League has ever seen, and the man literally won it all at Old Trafford, and he’ll always be remembered by the fans here. He was one of the few overseas players that just ‘get’ Manchester United Football Club.

Its a shame that he left the club in such acrimonious circumstances, and he would have been a brilliant help in terms of Anthony Martial’s settling in period. The pair would have also been a brilliant force to be reckoned with down that left-hand side for both club and country.

Check out the snap of the pair here:
