Anthony Martial has shown he's worth the price tag - Didier Deschamps
Anthony Martial has lived up to his hefty price tag for Manchester United, according to France coach Didier Deschamps.
United paid Monaco £36 million to woo Martial last summer, a move that earned the then-19-year-old the title of "world's most expensive teenager."
But his international manager said Martial has shown he can live up to the pressure by scoring 12 goals in all competitions this season.
"Anthony is young but he has confirmed his potential in Manchester despite the weight of the price of his transfer," Deschamps said.
"He has progressed, he plays a lot. He is young and he is not tired.
"He is doing very interesting things with speed and impact. Usually he plays on the left but he can play as centre-forward too.
"It's good, he continues to progress, he comes regularly for the French national team [but] he has a lot of room for improvement."
Deschamps' France side take on Netherlands and Russia in friendlies this week, likely allowing Martial to build on his six caps.
