Manchester United boss impressed by striker but offers caution

martial22BBC Sport have managed to get the majority of our regulars looking up with interest here in the Football Transfer Tavern as they claim Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal has been speaking about Anthony Martial.

We think the young player has managed to work his way into the hearts of fans after what can only be described as the perfect debut on the weekend, and now it seems that Van Gaal is keen to lavish praise on the record breaking signing – but make it very clear that United fans need to lower their expectations of the player.

We think LVG is right Рthere is no doubt the attacking player has skill and is willing to run at people, but given he is so young and so new to the league, fans would do well to remember that he needs to develop and be given time before all the expectation is placed on his shoulders!

Manchester United fans. How good do you think Martial can actually be? Is he one of the best young players you have seen? Let us know your thoughts below!
