While the performances of Nemanja Matic and Romelu Lukaku thrilled the Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern, there were a few others to have impressed.
Indeed, super sub Anthony Martial notched after coming on against West Ham United, much to the delight of our resident Red Devils. A hugely popular figure in our bar, the 21-year-old struggled to impose himself under Jose Mourinho last term, after thrilling upon his arrival on these shores.
Martial ha per ora scartato l'opzione Inter. Preferisce eventualmente rimanere in Premier
— Tancredi Palmeri (@tancredipalmeri) August 14, 2017
The Frenchman has been linked with a move to Inter Milan this summer as part of a deal to bring Ivan Perisic to Old Trafford, though comments from Italian journalist Tancredi Palmeri on Twitter have gone down well.
While that usually would hint at remaining with United, Martial has recently been touted as a potential target for Tottenham Hotspur, who may be able to offer him more in the way of first-team football.
Palmeri doesn’t say anything about a move to Spurs mind, though some of our more cynical United-mad punters are scared about it.
As he proved by coming off the bench, United would be stupid to allow Martial an exit. Battling on so many fronts this season, the 21-year-old gives Mourinho so much strength in depth as both a winger and a striker, so giving him to Tottenham would be a nightmare.
Must be kept at the Theatre of Dreams.
