The Red Devils made Martial the world’s most expensive teenager for a staggering €60m in 2015.

The French striker was one of football’s biggest young prospects following some remarkable progress at Monaco.

So United had to dig deep to convince the reluctant Monaco board into a sale.

“We wished to keep him but Manchester United made an incredible offer that neither Anthony nor AS Monaco, could refuse,” said former vice-president Vadim Vasilyev.

Although many United fans have claimed this was a big waste of money.

The 2015 Golden Boy winner struggled badly under Jose Mourinho and seemed set to leave not too long ago either.

But Martial has won favour with Ole Gunnar Solskjaer and could still fulfil his potential at Old Trafford.

With his injury problems behind him, Martial just needs to find more consistency in his performances.
