Rumours have been hotting up that Anthony Martial will become a Spurs player this summer.

Martial was criticised by his manager Jose Mourinho for not returning to training in the USA following the birth of his son. The former Monaco man would be a fantastic asset and has a great eye for goal and is happy to provide assists.

Martial, 23 in December, joined Manchester United in September 2015 for a fee of £36 million. The France international can play anywhere across the front line.

Despite having limited playing time last season he still managed to average one goal per two games and one assist every three in the PL. We are crying out for some extra creativity in the final third, all too much we rely on Christian Eriksen and when the Dane is off his game we typically struggle to break down the opposition.

Have a look at some of the reactions from Twitter …

Does this rift suggest an opening for Spurs to get the deal done? Let us know your thoughts.

Have something to tell us about this article?

Brian has been a Spurs supporter from around 1960, so was there for the double, the FA Cup in 1962 and the European Cup Winners Cup in 1963. He admits to having cried when Spurs lost to Benfica in the 1962 European Cup Semi-final and to times when he could weep when watching Spurs for the past few years (but for very different reasons). Brian has been lucky enough to see greats such as Jimmy Greaves, Pat Jennings, Glenn Hoddle and Paul Gascoigne. During the 60s, 70s and 80s Spurs won at least one domestic trophy and one European trophy each decade (with those wonderful all white strip floodlit games). It has taken Brian more than 20 years to realise that may take a while to come back, but hope lives on.

  1. It could not be more simpler, but when 2 ego’s like Levy and Jose are involved then the simplest things can become so, so idiotic!

    Toby came to the club for 12m. Estimated fee 55m. Profit: 43m
    Martial to Utd for 36m. Estimated fee: 70m. Profit: 34m

    Utd need and want (Toby) a c/b.
    Spurs need and want (Martial) a wide player capable of playing through the middle.
    You put Toby on a private jet to Manchester with a Spurs shirt with the No:9 on it and tell him to tell the pilot to wait whilst he gives the shirt to Martial who then jumps on the private jet back to London.

    Everyone’s happy except the 2 self-important ego’s! And unfortunately for all the rest of us, that’s why this deal will never happen!
