Deal Close: Manchester United on the verge of a huge signing

MartialAs we enter the final days of this long summer transfer window, the rumours are coming in thick and fast in the Transfer Tavern, with many excited punters seeing away one too many pints.

A team and a position that have dominated the back pages over the past few months is Manchester United, and the question marks over the strikers or seemingly more the lack of strikers. With Robin Van Persie and Radamel Falcao already departing, this is a position of real concern for the boozy Red Devils in this pub.

So they are delighted to hear the news that is doing the rounds today, BBC Sport are reporting that the Old Trafford outfit are on the brink of signing 19-year old French striker Anthony Martial.

The 19-year old, who currently plies his trade in Monaco, is set to cost United a whopping £36 million, making him the most expensive teenager in history and the 3rd most expensive player to ever arrive at the Theatre of Dreams.

What do you make of this one United fans? IS he good enough for you? Let us know below!
