Hindsight is a wonderful thing isn’t it?
To be quite honest with you, when Manchester United forked out an incredible £36 million to sign Anthony Martial from Monaco on deadline day, cries of ‘who’ rang around the bar while many questioned whether both Louis van Gaal and Ed Woodward had lost their mind.
But four games into his United career so far and the young French international has struck four goals in four games while proving that he was a gamble worth taking by United while for the likes of Arsenal, they were standing still with Arsene Wenger claiming that there was no value in the market.
While nobody is disputing the fact the fee for Martial was incredibly extortionate, some Arsenal fans find it so hard to agree with Wenger’s laidback stance in the transfer window given Arsenal charge one of the most expensive prices for a matchday ticket in the Premier League, not to mention the fact, Lord Harris claimed the Gunners have £200 million stashed away in the kitty!
What’s made it worse for Gooners is the fact that both Theo Walcott and Olivier Giroud have been wasteful in front of goal this term despite getting on the scoresheet here and there.
With the Gunners looking light up top and United benefiting from the he who dares, wins mantra in regards to landing Martial, we’ve devised five reasons why Arsenal should’ve moved for the Frenchman far earlier in the summer and ahead of the Red Devils.
