According to The Express, Tottenham Hotspur have opened talks with Manchester United over the signing of Frenchman Anthony Martial in this summer’s transfer window.
United are said to be playing hardball when it comes to Martial, despite the fact that the attacker’s agent revealed earlier this month that his client wanted to leave Old Trafford.
Tottenham are said to be desperate to bring the former Monaco youngster to London, although it is still difficult to see United selling Martial to a Premier League rival.
The Spurs fans have been reacting to the latest reports, and one supporter has offered up a potential solution – swapping central defender Toby Alderweireld for Martial.
There are also those Tottenham fans who feel that the 22-year-old has already agreed to join Juventus, but plenty are still hopeful that he will arrive in the English capital this summer.
Martial could be an absolute star at Tottenham if given the chance, and United will surely be made to regret selling him if that does indeed occur ahead of the new season.

We want Martial, you want Toby. You’ve overvalued Martial, we’ve overvalued Toby. Let’s just trade and leave it at that. Cheers, thanks.
