When Manchester United signed a 19-year-old teenager, who had just one full season under his belt, paying over £36m, eyebrows were raised. It was seen as a panic buy from United on the summer transfer deadline day.
Louis van Gaal admitted that he had signed a top class player for the future and United managers after him would reap the benefit from his vast talents, provided he justifies his true potential.
Martial’s rise has been nothing short of phenomenal. He scored on his debut against Liverpool and has already established himself as one of the key players for United at such a tender age.
His brilliant form for his club has earned a regular place in the France nation team, and he hasn’t disappointed so far.
The Manchester United forward provided a sublime assist for Arsenal striker Olivier Giroud on Friday, as France defeated Germany 2-0. However, the celebration from the victory quickly turned sour with the news of France being hit by a terrorist attack.
Let’s watch the goal. Keep an eye on Martial’s dazzling feet in the build up to the goal.
