However, Vasilyev said on the club's website: "We really wanted to keep (Martial) on the team, but Manchester has made an incredible offer, almost the close of the market, an offer that neither the club nor the player could refuse. That's football.

"(It is) evident that certain clubs - especially the British - have unprecedented resources, and it is hard to resist."

De Gea is calm over failed Man United exit - Mata

Juan Mata expects his Spain and Manchester United team-mate David de Gea to remain professional, despite the disappointment of his failed move to Real Madrid.

The 24-year-old goalkeeper, who has not featured for United this season, was the subject of a bid from hometown club Real on Monday, but the deal fell through due to a miscommunication.

"He seems calm to me, like he always is," Mata told AS.com. "He's had a testing few days, but I've been his friend and by his side throughout.

"It's good that he's here and just thinking about these two matches. He will be professional just like he always has been throughout his career.

"David is a professional and he will remain that way. He's a great goalkeeper and any team would be boosted by his presence. The fans will get behind him, and all of us."
