He's good on FIFA and Football Manager so he must be good in real life...
After Wayne Rooney went from netting a hat-trick in the Champions League against Brugge the other night to becoming a literal human statue against Swansea, it looks like Man United are in the market for a striker.
And it turns out Louis van Gaal is after Monaco's Anthony Martial according to reports from the French Football Federation who have given permission for the 19-year-old to leave France's training camp and fly to Manchester.

It also turns out that United are ready to splash a massive £36million according to RMC for the striker who netted 11 goals for Monaco last season – almost £11million more than they spent on Rooney!
Now, now thing is for sure, most Man United fans won't have seen him play or even heard of him for that matter, but that won't stop them from getting all excited about him or furious if he doesn't sign... you know, like Pedro...
So we've had a look on Twitter to gage Man United fans reactions...
€50m for Anthony Martial could turn out to be a brilliant deal. Can't be sure though, as I've never actually heard of him.— Gav Roberts (@Gav246) August 30, 2015
Fifa15 fans will know Anthony Martial well. Got to 85+ within a few years. Absolute beast— Ben Smith (@bensmith130) August 30, 2015
I don't understand how you can quibble over a couple of million for Pedro and then splash out £36m on Anthony Martial.— Jonathan Wilson (@jonawils) August 31, 2015

Anthony Martial scored a bucket load of goals for me in football manager one year. Great signing if working under the right manager— Alan Ward (@award899) August 31, 2015
