Henry admitted he thinks United have taken a gamble by signing Martial, but believes the 19-year-old can bring great pace to manager Louis van Gaal’s team.

"It's kind of a weird one for me because he's from the West Indies," he told Sky Sports.

"He's obviously French, but he's from the West Indies. We're from the same town too.

"I know of him. I heard about him way before he went to Lyon and Monaco, and now obviously he's at United.

"He has pace. Can he score a lot of goals? I actually don’t know.

"It is a massive gamble that clubs need to take nowadays because of the situation that United are in.

"We saw him at the Emirates last season playing for Monaco and causing trouble for the Arsenal defence.

"He has a bright future, but there's ways a question mark.

"Is he going to perform? Last season Angel Di Maria, an established and experienced player, couldn't make it in United's ranks.

"So all the best to him. He has pace and he can bring that to the team."
