Irony at its best: Wenger criticizing Manchester United’s transfer policy

Arsenal boss Wenger claims that it is a slippery slope with ‘a huge investment’ while talking about Manchester United’s latest signing Anthony Martial.

Martial became the most expensive teenager in football history when he signed for Louis van Gaal’s side from Monaco on Tuesday night.

The 19-year-old, who has been compared by some in France to former Arsenal striker Thierry Henry despite making just 29 senior starts in spells at Lyon and Monaco and only earning a first call-up to his national squad last month.

He said: ‘What happened last night [Tuesday] with Monaco, who sold Martial to Manchester United for 80million Euros, I’ve heard.

‘Martial scored 11 goals in the French championship – that sums it up well. Martial is a huge talent – he’s 19 years old. The investment is absolutely huge as well. It shows you that there’s not many players in the world who can strengthen these teams.’

‘The problem at the moment is finding the players that guarantees you are a better team after, and that example last night shows you very well. ‘
