Anthony Martial joined Manchester United on 1st September 2015 for a fee of £36,000,000 which was the highest transfer fee paid for a teenager at the time. The Frenchman had one of the most memorable debut goals, coming off the bench against club rivals, Liverpool, to score a well taken finish after a weaving run with the ball. This instantly made him a hit with the fans. He combines speed with technical ability to be one of the best dribblers in the league, and for the 2017-18 and 2018-19 seasons, the most clinical finisher in the Premier League. For United, he mainly plays up front as a lone striker, where he looks to drop and link play, but he is also very good as a left inside forward. At United, he has won the FA Cup 2016-16, EFL Cup 2016-17, FA Community shield 2016 and the UEFA Europa League 2016-17. Individually, he collected the Golden Boy award in 2015 too.
