Owen Hargreaves has described Manchester United star Anthony Martial as a “£100m player” following his performance against Copenhagen in the Europa League on Monday.
The Red Devils had to rely on a penalty from Bruno Fernandes in extra time in order to qualify against the Danish side, but up until that point had peppered the opposition goal with shots, with Martial, Marcus Rashford, and Mason Greenwood all being denied at different points.
However, even though he didn’t score, Martial lit up the game with a couple of absolutely mesmerising dribbles, as he cut his way through the Copenhagen defence only to just fail to complete the moves with a finish.
But, Hargreaves thinks they already have a player worth that much on the books.
"Everyone's got an opinion on Martial. He's a Ferrari," the former United midfielder said on BT Sport.
"He just looked like a £100 million player."
Hargreaves’ comments were echoed by Man Utd boss Ole Gunnar Solskjaer.
"He was sharp," the Norwegian said after the game.
"Anthony has developed throughout the season, he was involved with the penalty.
"He's impossible to stop at times when he gets the ball into his feet and he drives at people, his balance, he can go either way.
"The only thing now is to put that ball in the back of the net again. I'm delighted with his performance, though."
The win against Copenhagen put Man Utd through to the quarter-final of the Europa League.
