Monaco’s Martial set for big-money United move


PARIS: Monaco forward Anthony Martial has been given permission by France coach Didier Deschamps “to travel to England to sign a contract with Manchester United”, the French Football Federation announced on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). The announcement comes amid reports in France that the Premier League club are willing to pay a huge fee of anywhere between 50 million and 80 million euros (£36.5m-58.4m; $56m-89.6m) to sign the teenager. The 19-year-old striker was given a full international call-up for the first time by Deschamps for France’s friendly games against Portugal in Lisbon on Friday and Serbia in Bordeaux on Monday.
