Louis van Gaal took his total expenditure as Manchester United manager to over a quarter of a billion pounds following the signing of Anthony Martial from Monaco.

United failed in their last-minute bid to offload goalkeeper David de Gea to Real Madrid on Monday night, but there were no late hiccups regarding Martial.

The Old Trafford club confirmed on Tuesday afternoon they had completed a deal to sign the 19-year-old French striker for a fee believed to be worth in excess of £36million.

United tweeted: “#mufc is pleased to announce French forward @AnthonyMartial has completed his transfer from Monaco. #WelcomeMartial”

He becomes the 12th signing of Van Gaal’s reign. In total, the Dutchman has spent around £261m on new additions since he took over as manager last summer.

Martial, 19, becomes the most expensive teenager in the history of football, eclipsing the £30m fee Van Gaal paid for Luke Shaw last year.

Monaco, who signed Martial from Lyon two years ago, rate the player highly, but the Ligue 1 club admitted United’s offer was simply too good to turn down.

Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev told the club’s website: “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”.

The forward, who scored 15 goals in 70 appearances for Monaco, has signed a four-year contract, with the option of another year.

Elsewhere, Colombia forward Victor Ibarbo has signed for Watford on a season-long loan from Roma.

Ibarbo joined midfielder Adlene Guedioura and 19-year-old Belgian striker Obbi Oulare in moving to Vicarage Road on transfer deadline day.

The 25-year-old has spent seven months with Roma, having previously played for Cagliari.

And DeAndre Yedlin has become Sunderland’s eighth summer signing after completing a season-long loan move from Tottenham.

The 22-year-old United States full-back has followed Fabio Borini, Jeremain Lens, Yann M’Vila, Ola Toivonen, Younes Kaboul, Seb Coates and Adam Matthews to the Stadium of Light.
