Fans react with surprise at £36m Martial deal

Manchester United fans have reacted with great surprise after the club made a £36m move for Monaco’s Anthony Martial.

The 19-year-old travelled to Manchester after being given permission by the French Football Federation to leave the France squad and discuss terms at the club.

Monaco appear to have been reluctant to sell the forward and it looks as though a £36m fee will be enough to prise the youngster from the Ligue 1 club.

Considered as one of the league’s best prospects, however his goalscoring record last season of 11 goals in 42 appearances has raised some eyebrows among the United supporters.

Questions have also emerged on social media of Louis van Gaal after the United boss insisted there would be no panic buys in the transfer window after Sunday’s defeat at Swansea.


With the striker relatively unknown across the Channel the majority of supporters appear to be unimpressed with the money mentioned in the deal.
