It has been revealed that Manchester United turned to Anthony Martial after Bayern Munich refused to do business over Thomas Muller.
The Red Devils surprised everyone by landing untested Martial from Monaco, in a £36m deadline day deal.
And that fee is set to rise to a whopping £57.6m with add-ons.
But according to The Sun, United only signed the young Frenchman after Bayern Munich rejected their offer for proven goalscorer Muller.
Bayern President Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said: “I’m talking about figures which were very high. If I were a bank manager I’d have had to accept it.”
