Manchester United have left it late, but it looks as though the club are about to complete their sixth signing of the summer. AS Monaco’s Anthony Martial is now in Manchester and set to undergo his medical ahead of a £36million move to Old Trafford.
Earlier today the Frenchman, 19, was allowed to leave his national team’s camp to complete his move to Old Trafford by their manager Didier Deschamps.
Manchester United officials have certainly acted quickly on this one, and credit to Edward Woodward and co. for once again keeping this one low key.
The club have reportedly been scouting Martial for over a year, and even bid for the striker back in June but it was knocked back due to their participation in the Champions League.
Now they are out of Europe, Manchester United moved back in and look to have got a deal secured extremely quickly. Fair play.
