Man United completed a staggering transfer deadline-day deal for French teenager Anthony Martial Tuesday, but David De Gea remained at Old Trafford after his move to Real Madrid collapsed.News of United's interest in 19-year-old Martial first broke Monday and he duly signed a four-year contract with an option for a further year after passing a medical examination.British press reports put the fee at 36 million pounds ($55.1 million), which would make Martial the game's most expensive teenager, and reports in France said it could rise to 80 million euros.Martial has only 52 league games under his belt and United manager Louis van Gaal said the club would need to show the pacy former Lyon youngster patience.Having already turned down two offers of up to 21 million pounds from Spurs last month, Albion chairman Jeremy Peace reportedly rejected two more approaches for the 22-year-old striker in the final hours before the deadline.
