Speaking on Monaco’s official website, Monaco Vice President Vadim Vasilyev had the following to say on Anthony Martial’s departure to Manchester United.
“We wished to keep him this season but Manchester United made an incredible offer that neither Anthony, nor AS Monaco, could refuse. Our project showcases many players and Anthony has proven his worth and potential on the pitch. Though this move was not planned, it shows the quality of the work undertaken by the technical staff but also that we were right to recruit him two years ago. We wish Anthony the best for the next chapter in his career.”
