Prior to Manchester United’s new signing Anthony Martial even kicking a ball, there was quite a storm brewing around his whopping £36 million signature.
However, in fairness to the French international youngster since arriving from Monaco on deadline day, he’s answered the critics in the best way possible, striking three goals in his opening two Premier League games for the Red Devils.
Striking a brace against Southampton last Sunday after prviously scoring a goal to put the seal on a 3-1 United victory over arch-rivals Liverpool just a week earlier, it has been a fairytale start to life at Old Trafford for the 19-year-old.
The general feeling in the Football Transfer Tavern at the moment is that if Martial keeps up his excellent scoring record, people will start forgetting about the fee entirely whilst solely concentrating on his clinical edge in front of goal.
We’ve seen the likes of Liverpool absolutely waste £35 million on the panic signing of Andy Carroll in the past but where Martial is concerned, the early signs are good although he’ll want to achieve plenty more under Louis van Gaal as the season progresses.
With the Frenchman being the man on the lips of every Red Devils supporter right now, we’ve taken this moment to devise a list of five things you may not know about United’s third most expensive signing of all-time.
