IT WAS MONEY THAT MADE MONACO CHANGE THEIR MIND ON SELLING ANTHONY MARTIAL.
Arsene Wenger was having a close look at Anthony Martial even during his Lyon days. But the president of Monaco clearly told Arsene Wenger that Anthony Martial was not in the list of players that were for sale, as Monaco had sold quite a few players he was not for sale for sure . It was then that Louis Van Gaal got Anthony Martial for a very huge amount, the price is not 36, thirty six million pounds, but the figure is eighty six million pounds yo see, eyebrows will be raised only if you follow football well. Anthony Martial had not yet played a game for France, and to pay eighty six million pounds, that is much more than the fifty six million pounds that Real Madrid paid Juventus to buy Zinedine Zidane, ho is a world cup winner, a Euro Cup winner. Now you see what I am pointing out here. Another story is that the wife of the Russian owner of Monaco has filed for divorce and wants two Billion Pounds from her husband, so fifty eight million ppunds for unheard player was enough to sell him.
