Manchester United agree £36m fee for Anthony Martial

by Sam Peoples

Manchester United have agreed a deal with AS Monaco for Anthony Martial which is believed to be worth £36m.

The French Football Federation confirmed earlier today that Martial had been given permission to fly to Manchester to sign a contract with Man United and it now looks like a fee has been agreed.

At current exchange rates, that works out to roughly €50m which was the original fee reported when news of the bids broke last night.

RMC in France believe the fee could reach €80m (€60m plus €20m bonuses) but the word from the British press is that €50m is the fee that has been agreed.

There is also a suggestion that one or more United players could join AS Monaco as part of the deal.



United are in desperate need of creativity, pace and goals in attack. Somebody like Martial, who is a raw striker with bags of potential, could go a long way to solving those problems.

With Martial now due in Manchester this afternoon, United are set for an extremely busy couple of days before the transfer deadline closes on Tuesday.
