Reports have emerged claiming that Ray Parlour is of the belief that Anthony Martial will be a failure for Manchester United.
The Red Devils shelled out £36million for the 19-year-old French forward in the summer transfer window which attracted both praise and criticism from all quarters.
Former Arsenal midfielder Parlour admits he is unsure about the former AS Monaco youngster and fears that perhaps Martial could be an expensive mistake by United.
Parlour told Sky Sports : “Will Martial succeed? I look forward to seeing him play, but I think it’s going to be a miss, because the money they’ve spent is an unbelievable amount,”.
“For a 19-year-old kid, he’s not proven.
“If he proves to be like a Thierry Henry, which is what a lot of people are saying, then he could obviously be a great signing, but I think it is a massive gamble to take on a 19-year-old kid.
“With the money they’ve put out, I could be totally wrong, but I’m going to say miss on that one.”
