Manchester United are set to sign the most expensive teenager in history – but who is he and how much will he cost?

When Manchester United signed Radamel
Falcao from Monaco this time last year,
they paid a £6m loan fee while covering his
£265,000 per week wages. That gamble did
not pay off, as Falcao struggled for form and
fitness and scored just four goals for Louis
van Gaal’s side.
At the end of this window, in far greater
need of striking reinforcements than they
were last year, United have gone back to the
Principality to take an even greater gamble.
While Falcao was a proven striker, if past
his peak following a knee injury, Anthony
Martial is a very different prospect.
The £36m fee – more than United paid for
Luke Shaw last year – makes Martial the
most expensive teenager in the history of
British football. It is a remarkable sum of
money for a player who does not turn 20
until December and who has scored only 11
senior Ligue 1 goals. Martial is certainly
talented and has been compared, in terms of
his talents and his style, to a young Thierry
Henry.
