The Daily Mail have managed to get the majority of our punters in the Football Transfer Tavern looking up with interest as they claim that forward Wayne Rooney has offered his support to new Manchester United signing Anthony Martial.
The forward has become the most expensive teenager of all time after his mega money move to Old Trafford, and despite Rooney initially admitting he didn’t know who the player was, it seems he has tipped the French international to succeed.
We think Rooney is right, and if Martial’s performance for France is anything to go by, he will certainly be lighting up the top flight of English football this season – and in seasons to come.
Manchester United fans. What do you make of these comments? Do you think that Rooney will manage to link up and create a partnership with the forward? Let us know your thoughts below.
