Manchester United have reportedly launched a whopping £36.3m bid for Monaco starlet Anthony Martial.

The 13-time Premier League champions are on the lookout for a new striker before the close of the transfer window following United’s poor run of form in front of goal so far this season, scoring just three times in their opening four games.

The 19-year-old, who is a France Under-21 international, scored eight goals in 31 league appearances for the Ligue 1 outfit last term.

With fellow forward Javier Hernandez tipped for an Old Trafford exit before Tuesday’s 6pm deadline; it is thought that Red Devils boss Louis van Gaal is desperately trying to pull off a late coup in Martial, who is regarded as one of Europe’s hottest prospects.
