Tottenham Hotspur would be making their most exciting signing for years, if they were able to snap up Manchester United’s Anthony Martial this summer.
Martial was left on the substitutes’ bench for the Red Devils’ first match of the season, but came on to make a huge impact.
Martial scored and claimed an assist during a 4-0 victory over West Ham United, and his ability was clear to see. It always has been.
Mourinho seems to have some doubts over utilising the 21-year-old, but if Tottenham could bring the former Monaco man to the club, he would surely go down as their greatest addition for years.
Tottenham have generally brought in youngsters, with the hope of developing them, but Martial would arguably be the Lilywhites’ highest-profile new signing since Rafael van der Vaart.
And, while Van Der Vaart was in the peak of his career when he moved to Spurs, Martial still has time to become even better.
Martial is just 21, and under the guidance of Mauricio Pochettino he could thrive.
Any deal to take Martial would force Tottenham to break their transfer record, but the reward of bringing the French international to the club would almost certainly be worth the expensive fee which Pochettino’s side would have to pay.
