Manchester United have announced the signing of forward Anthony Martial from Monaco on a four-year contract.
Louis van Gaal took his total expenditure as Manchester United manager to over a quarter of a billion pounds following the signing of Anthony Martial from Monaco.
United failed in their last-minute bid to offload goalkeeper David de Gea to Real Madrid on Monday night, but there were no late hiccups regarding Martial.
The Old Trafford club confirmed on Tuesday afternoon they had completed a deal to sign the 19-year-old French striker for a fee believed to be worth in excess of £36million.
Martial becomes the 12th signing of Van Gaal's reign. In total, the Dutchman has spent around £261million on new additions since he took over as manager last summer.
The 19-year-old also becomes the most expensive teenager in the history of football, eclipsing the £30million fee Van Gaal paid for Luke Shaw last year.
Monaco, who signed Martial from Lyon two years ago, rate the player highly, but the Ligue 1 club admitted United's offer was simply too good to turn down.
Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev told the club's website: "We wished to keep him this season but Manchester United made an incredible offer that neither Anthony, nor AS Monaco, could refuse."
The forward, who scored 15 goals in 70 appearances for Monaco, has signed a four-year contract, with the option of another year.
Manchester United have agreed a fee of £36million for the 19-year-old Monaco striker Anthony Martial.
Martial was allowed to leave France's training camp to travel to Carrington for a medical earlier today.
Provided Martial passes those medical tests, he will become the most expensive teenager in football history.
The current most expensive teenager in world football is Luke Shaw, who signed for United for a fee that could rise to just over £30million last summer.
Martial's first club, Olympique Lyonnais, were the first to offer their congratulations.
Martial is a 19-year-old French striker who signed for Monaco from Lyon for just #3.7million two years ago.
The teenager, who can play either on the wing or up front, scored 10 goals in 44 appearances for Monaco last season. He has played three times for the Ligue 1 club so far this term.
United's pursuit of the player came completely out of the blue.
The club had been linked with the likes of Gareth Bale, Thomas Muller, Neymar and Edinson Cavani this summer, but they have decided to invest their money in Martial instead.
