Graham Roberts has said on Twitter that Tottenham Hotspur should give Anthony Martial a wide berth this summer.

Tottenham have been occasionally linked with a move for the France international in recent years [The Telegraph].

According to The Sun, Manchester United are willing to listen to offers for him this summer, due to a 'poor attitude' in training.

Speculation about a move to Spurs might well surface again on the back of that report, but the club's former player Roberts says that Mauricio Pochettino should avoid him.


But should Pochettino give him a wide berth?

The Argentine is one of the best man-managers around and Martial, at 23, still has a lot of potential.

If Pochettino continues to develop him then Martial could and probably would become the player that his talent suggests he could be.

Martial isn't the finished article, but with the right coaching he could get a lot better and if he's available, Tottenham shouldn't stick their nose up at it.
