Man United transfers: Gary Neville tweets shock over Anthony Martial fee

Former Man United defender Gary Neville tweets his surprise after Anthony Martial deal rises to £59m

Gary Neville was speechless after the Manchester United legend went out for dinner only to return to see Anthony Martial’s fee had risen to £59m.

The Red Devils were initially reported to have agreed a £36m deal with Monaco for the highly-rated 19-year-old striker.

However, reports in France suggested that the Ligue 1 side were claiming the deal was an initial £36m fee with £23m in add-ons.

And Neville presumably spat out some of his dinner when he was informed of the alleged increase in free for the uncapped France centre-forward.

Naturally, a host of United supporters flooded Neville’s timeline to update the popular Sky Sports host on the latest events in the Martial deal.

Former United centre-half David May was concerned about the fee, though, as he offered his fellow Champions League winner some helpful dietary advice.

United are yet to confirm the signing of Martial, who will become the sixth arrival of the summer transfer window.
