Manchester United have signed 19-year-old French striker Anthony Martial from Monaco on a four-year contract with an option for a further year, the two clubs announced Tuesday.News of United's move for Martial sent shock waves across European football, with the former Lyon youngster having played just 72 games and scored 15 goals in his fledgling career.Should the transfer fee exceed 75 million euros, Martial would surpass Zinedine Zidane as the most expensive French player of all time.Martial can play on the flanks, but his preferred position is at centre-forward and his arrival could see Wayne Rooney retreat to a number 10 role, having started the season as United's lone striker.Martial follows Memphis Depay, Matteo Darmian, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Morgan Schneiderlin and Sergio Romero in joining United and takes Van Gaal's spending since his appointment last year above £250 million.
