Since their loss to Liverpool, the Tottenham Hotspur fans in the Transfer Tavern have been somewhat down in the dumps in regards to their title hopes going forward for the rest of what has looked a promising campaign at times.
The Lilywhites have seen their ability to contest games against the Premier League elite (particularly away from home) called into question, so recent reports linking the north London side with a move for Manchester United star Anthony Martial have at least raised spirits.
While his second season in England hasn’t quite been as impressive as his first, the Frenchman is clearly one of the most talented young forwards in Europe and would certainly represent a major coup at White Hart Lane. Just whether or not United and Jose Mourinho would sell such a talent to a direct rival remains to be seen, though the mere notion of his arrival has had our local Spurs fans dancing on the pool tables.
With that in mind, here’s how Twitter reacted to the Anthony Martial rumours.
Reports linking Tottenham with Anthony Martial. That seems unlikely but wonder if they might try & sign Luke Shaw. That seems more possible

There's more chances of us buying Harry Kane than spurs getting this man
Not believing the Martial rumors. We're financing a shiny new stadium. We don't have £80M to spend on one player. #coys
