The French international striker joined United on deadline day for a fee rising to €80 million.

Speaking to an audience of executive United season ticket holders at Lancashire County Cricket ground, Van Gaal said: “It was a ridiculous amount of money, but it’s the crazy world we are in.

“United are routinely quoted £10m more for a player but I have not bought Martial for me. I have bought him for the next manager of Manchester United.”
