Manchester United are finally close to signing a striker this summer, after agreeing to pay an astonishing €80m for Anthony Martial. The Premier League giants are set to pay €60m upfront, €15m in guaranteed incentives and the rest as performance related bonuses.
The player has been granted permission to travel to England now and will undergo his Manchester United medical later today.
Martial has been linked with a move away from Monaco previously, with the likes of Chelsea and Valencia interested. The young striker is now set to replace Javier Hernandez and Adnan Januzaj at Manchester United.
Martial was granted the permission to leave his national team in order to complete his Manchester United medical. After the move is official, Martial will be one of the most expensive players of his age.
Manchester United will now press ahead with their search for a keeper. Real Madrid have agreed a deal to sign David De Gea. Victor Valdes is also set to leave, the former Barcelona star is off to Marseille.
