Van Gaal Insists Man Utd Saved Money Paying £36M For Anthony Martial

Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal believes Anthony Martial would have cost Manchester United an extra £10m if they had waited another year to sign him.

The 19-year-old’s £36m deadline day move to Old Trafford made him one of the most expensive teenagers in history.

“The crazy world of football is that there is a market and a market price,” said the Dutchman. “We cannot have any influence on that price. I have said to Ed [Woodward], he is the best of his age, and we need a striker in the future.

“So we can wait a year and then he is £10m more expensive, but now we can build him up and at the right time he can enter the game.”
