Manchester United have completed the £36m signing of striker Anthony Martial from AS Monaco.
The 19-year-old signs a four-year contract at Old Trafford with the option for a further 12 months.
Martial was given permission to leave the camp of the French national team yesterday to undergo a medical and complete a move which makes him the most expensive teenager in the history of football.

The Red Devils have been in the market for a new striker all summer, but had to wait until the final hour of the window to bring in some support for captain Wayne Rooney.
And Martial does not come with a great deal of pedigree. The Frenchman made 70 appearances for Monaco since joining from Lyon in 2013 and scored a modest total of 15 goals.
He is expected to take the prestigious No. 9 jersey, previously worn by Sir Bobby Charlton, at United.
