United’s add-ons proved to be crucial in his move to Old Trafford, as his fee could rise to a total of £58million depending on performances.
The Frenchman has had a blistering start to life in England, scoring four goals in his opening five appearances in the club and has received widespread acclaim.
Former Arsenal player, Ray Parlour, has changed his mind on Anthony Martial after having said the French “kid” would not succeed.
“They said they would not sell him and I thought they were not in any need to sell and would maintain their word”.
United boss Louis van Gaal was criticised for taking the plunge on the youngster but so far it has paid off. The club have backed the Dutchmen since he took charge and so far his tranfer policy is paying off. And we let him go with the bonus of 30million euros. “Had it not been for so much money, he would have stayed”.
“It is not a surprise for me because Anthony Martial has a lot of qualities and is a good man who will have a lot of success in Manchester“.
“No, it is not a surprise for me”, Jeremy Toulalan said when asked by Press Association Sport.
“We work hard to make sure our young players reach the top European level”.
It has silenced a few people.
“Hopefully it will for Arsenal, but for me it means everything because it used to be the game and at times it wasn’t much of a football game“. He’s always been talented though.
Since his return after the unsettling summer transfer saga, De Gea has been in fine form for United, producing a string of fine saves to re-emphasise his position as the best goalkeeper in the division.
From an Arsenal perspective, Theo Walcott, who has netted 12 goals in his last 13 Premier League starts for the Gunners, looks the most likely to score anytime.
In a world where hundreds of millions are forked out in transfers every year, players can all too often be labelled “mercenaries” and other terms related to money-grabbing in a system that’s only set up to promote such behaviour.
Depay, 21, and Martial, 19, have been impressive in the early stages of the season, and Schweinsteiger believes they can grow into even brighter prospects at Old Trafford.
