19-year-old French striker, Anthony Martial joined the Red Devils from Monaco on summer transfer deadline day for a deal worth £36million. Considering add-ons, the teenagers transfer fee can rise to £58m.

Many wondered why Manchester United had to spend that much on a relatively unknown teenager. Martial has since shut critics and skeptics up by scoring four goals in seven appearances for the Red Devils.

A report in France has now revealed that the 19-year-old rejected advances from premier league champions Chelsea in order to join Manchester United.

A tweet by CanalPlus magazine reads: “According to our information, Chelsea had proposed more money than Manchester United for Anthony Martial but the player dreamed of the Red Devils.”

Martial is expected to lead United’s attack when they face Everton at Goodison Park on Saturday, October 17, 2015.
