For £89m, which is what the Red Devils have valued Martial at according to The Times, Tottenham could do much better in the transfer market. The Frenchman is a real talent for the future based on his performances at Old Trafford so far, but he has a terrible habit of disappearing for long spells, especially against top opposition.

Harry Kane is a lethal Premier League finisher and one of the best strikers in the world. However, Spurs need better back-up options than an ageing Fernando Llorente and flop Vincent Janssen shadowing the striker, so they should spend the money on an out-and-out forward of real quality.
