MONACO VICE PRESIDENT Vadim Vasilyev claims another club outbid Manchester United for Anthony Martial.

The 19-year-old completed his move to Old Trafford on deadline deal for an initial fee of £36 million, although that figure could rise to £58m after add-ons.

Martial has made an impressive start to life in England with four goals in six games and the Monaco chief admits United’s offer was too good to turn down.

“There was another club that offered even more than United. I will not say how much, but the fixed price, without variables, it was even better,” Vasilyev told Marca.

“And also they offered us to have him for a further year in Monaco. But the boy wanted to go to Manchester, it was his dream.

“And we let him go with the bonus of €30 million. Had it not been for so much money, he’d have stayed.”
