Former Manchester United defender Phil Neville has praised his former club after they completed the signing of Monaco striker Anthony Martial.
The Red Devils were also linked with Arsenal target Edinson Cavani.
But Neville believes that the youngster, labelled 'the new Thierry Henry' by many, will not disappoint in the English Premier League.
"He was unplayable at times," Neville told the Daily Mail.
"He has strength, pace, everything you could look for.
"He kept drifting out to the left and causing us problems.
"He’s a proper centre-forward. Every time he got the ball your heart was in your mouth.
"He was really good in both games, especially at the Mestalla [against Valencia in the Champions League play-off].
"He’s a proper signing and I think he’s a better bet than spending the same on Edinson Cavani or someone similar."
