Manchester United have opened talks with Monaco over a £36million deal for 19-year-old striker Anthony Martial.
Though Monaco have not accepted Van Gaal’s offer for the teenager, talks are expected to continue on Monday.
Manchester United Manager Luis Van Gaal is desperate for a striker following Sunday’s 2-1 defeat at Liberty Stadium.
Javier Hernandez left United on Sunday for German club Bayer Leverkusen in a £12m deal. His move left a huge vacuum which should be filled with urgency. The 19-year-old, who has been compared in style to Thierry Henry is seen as a perfect replacement for Hernandez.
