Chelsea to rival Spurs for Manchester United winger’s signature

2

Sky Sports News reporter, Dharmesh Sheth has reported Chelsea are also interested in signing Spurs target Anthony Martial.

Martial’s future at Old Trafford seems to be in turmoil following the arrival of Alexis Sanchez in January.

The French winger did not make the France national side which went on to win the World Cup this summer due to a lack of game time under Jose Mourinho.

Speaking on the SSN transfer podcast, Sheth said:

“We are told Chelsea and Spurs are interested in Martial. There is also interest from Bayern and Dortmund.”

Martial left United’s pre-season tour to see the birth of his second child but the 22-year-old did not return straight away and was fined a report £180k.

However, a move for Martial would appear only possible for Spurs if it involved a switch deal for Toby Alderweireld.

Alderweireld’s future at the Lilywhites has been in serious doubt over the summer and with only days remaining until the transfer window shuts could we see a late swap deal take place?

Have something to tell us about this article?

  1. Will Mourinho let him go to either Chelsea, or Spurs? Seems unlikely. Both are competitors of Man Utd for a top 4 place.
