Anthony Martial was born on December 5, 1995 in Massy in the Essonne. A little prodigy of the round ball, he became interested in soccer at a very young age and joined the club Les Ulis (where Patrice Evra and Thierry Henry also made their debut) in 2001.
The young man made his first try with Manchester City at the age of 12 before being spotted by the Olympique Lyonnais academy, where he soon made a name for himself by scoring no less than 32 goals in 21 games. His talent on the field attracted the attention of the French junior team, which offered him to participate in the UEFA championship in 2012. The following year, he signed a 3-year contract with AS Monaco for 5 million euros while he was still only 17 years old.
After 2 years in the Principality, Anthony flies to England, where he joins Manchester United with a 4-year contract for 36 million pounds. This was one of the highest transfers for such a young player. Within a few games, he was soon making a name for himself on the English fields and was called back to play with the French team in a friendly match with Portugal and then Serbia. He was also selected to participate in the Euro 2016 in Paris.
On the private side, Anthony Martial shares the life of Melanie Da Cruz, former candidate of Secret Story. On July 25, 2018, she reveals on her Instagram account the birth of their first child, a little boy named Swan. On March 24, 2019, the couple got engaged during a stay in Dubai.
