Manchester United Football Club are close to finalising a deal for AS Monaco’s Anthony Martial today, and with just hours left before the deadline that should be announced in the not too distant future.
According to Sky Sources, Martial, 19, has completed his Manchester United medical already ahead of the proposed £36million move for the extremely talented Frenchman.
This deal really came out of nowhere like much of Manchester United’s business this summer, despite constant links to plenty of world class players throughout the window.
Edward Woodward once again deserves credit for keeping this one under wraps for so long, and it looks as though Manchester United will eventually go into the season with a new number nine.
Hopefully Martial won’t be phased by the huge price tag and can really hit the ground running whilst forming a solid partnership with the likes of Wayne Rooney, Memphis Depay and Juan Mata.
