Spurs to move for Anthony Martial?


Anthony Martial news

Martial wanted at Spurs?

Tottenham Hotspur are reportedly keen on offering an escape route to unsettled Manchester United forward Anthony Martial.

The France international had struggled for regular first-team football until last week where he notched an assist and a goal in the 2-0 win over Watford.

Despite this, the 21-year-old is still not a favourite under the Special One, and it could take one sloppy performance for him to return to the substitutes' bench.

According to The Mirror, Spurs are eager to offer a fresh challenge to the former AS Monaco man, just 18 months after being beaten to the player's services by United.

Martial, who had a good first season at Old Trafford last term, is just one goal away (25-goal tally) from triggering a clause which would force United to pay an additional £8.5m to Monaco.

The French youngster was recruited for an initial £36 sum in the summer of 2015 with the promise of an extra £22m to be settled as performance-based add-ons.
