Anthony Martial has revealed that his fellow Frenchman Patrice Evra helped convince him to join Manchester United last summer


Despite links with a host of top European clubs, Martial signed for Manchester United.

Asked who he sought for advice prior to the move, Martial conceded that ex-United left-back Evra  spoke very positively about life at Old Trafford.

“Pat Evra who lives in the same town as me in France and who has only had good things to say to me about the club,” the striker said.

“He told me it was a club of champions, a club that above else wants to win and certainly since I’ve arrived here I’ve felt that for myself too.”
