Red Devils to seal late deal for exciting youngster.

Manchester United are closing in on a deadline day deal to sign AS Monaco striker Anthony Martial, with the 19-year-old confirmed as travelling to England to complete the move.

The talented young Frenchman has shone in Ligue 1, though this move comes as something of a surprise after the club were linked to many bigger names throughout this transfer window.

Martial could prove a bit of a disappointment to fans given raised expectations from rumours surrounding the likes of Neymar and Gareth Bale, though there’s no doubt the club urgently needed a new striker.
