New Manchester United signing Anthony Martial is preparing for his France debut.

Anthony Martial is preparing for his France debut, and has been pictured training alongside veteran Patrice Evra at Clarefontaine.

Martial signed for Manchester United on transfer deadline day in a big money deal from Monaco, following the path Evra took.

Evra move from Monaco to Manchester United in 2007, and went onto captain the club and win the Champions League.

If there is anybody better advised to give Martial a few tips about what to expect at Old Trafford, we can't think of them, and Martial appears delighted to be training alongside him.

France face Portugal on Friday night in a friendly, as they continue building their side to hopefully win the tournament they host at Euro 2016.

Martial will know he has an opportunity to play a major role, and if he does go onto play a starring role in helping Les Bleus lift the trophy, his price tag will begin to start looking like a potential bargain.
