Sky Sports reporter Michael Bridge says it’s unlikely that Tottenham will make a move for Anthony Martial, but reckons that Manchester United would be interested in selling.
Following some impressive attacking additions in recent years, Jadon Sancho being the most recent this summer, the Frenchman would appear to be slowly slipping down the pecking order at Old Trafford.
Should Tottenham sign Madueke?
The signing of Sancho, though, comes after Martial struggled massively last season, scoring just seven goals in 36 games in all competitions, and only four in the Premier League.
Spurs have already lost Gareth Bale and Erik Lamela, whilst Harry Kane could also be on his way out of the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium before the window closes.
Martial can play on the left or through the middle, having done both on several occasions during his United career.
However, Bridge told The Transfer Tavern that he doesn’t expect Tottenham to pursue a deal for the 25-year-old:
“Looking at it now, I’ve not heard that at all. I think United would entertain it, but would we have to sell before that? I can’t see that one personally.
