Manchester United have announced the signing of 19 year old Frenchman, Anthony Martial. The Red devils completed the transfer of Martial from Monaco for a reported fee of 36 million pounds.
The signing of Martial comes in a last ditch attempt to beat the transfer window which is set to close today. Manchester United coach Loius Van Gaal has come under pressure to sign a striker after his team scored just three goals in four premier league games.
Two of the three goals were own goals with captain Wayne Rooney failing to find the net in 10 Premier league games. A loss to Swansea at the weekend increased the pressure on the gaffer.
Manchester United have had an impressive transfer window, sealing the transfer of five players this window. The deal for Anthony Martial makes the record books as the most expensive teenager in world football.
