Manchester United’s only major signing of transfer deadline day was a move for AS Monaco’s Anthony Martial, and the 19-year old seems humbled by the move to Old Trafford. Shortly after the conformation, the starlet took to Twitter to express his delight at the move.
“Very proud to be able to wear the colors [sic] of the biggest English club @ManUtd ” Martial wrote on his official Twitter page.
He also took the time to thank AS Monaco for turning him into the huge talent that he is today – its nice to know that he has respect for his former employees.
One thing that has impressed me about Martial is the handling of the transfer. It is a club record fee for a teenager and the 19-year old doesn’t seem phased by it whatsoever.
Hopefully we’ll get a glimpse of him whilst he is with the French national team so we can see him in action before he comes back to Manchester to take part in his first training session with his new teammates.
