Manchester United have completed the signing of teenager, Anthony Martial from Monaco for Â£36 million.
The 19-year-old striker was poised for a move to Tottenham, but signed a new contract with Monaco and has now become Van Gaal’s sixth signing of the window.
Martial who got his first international call up with France, was given permission to go and complete a move to United.
A deal Monaco believe will eventually be worth Â£58.7 million.
“I’m so excited to join United,” said Martial upon signing a four-year contract with the option for a further year. “I’ve always wanted to play in the Premier League and I look forward to meeting my team-mates.”
Manager Van Gaal added: “Anthony is a talented young forward with great potential. I believe this is the club for him to continue his development.”
