Anthony Martial may have put in a man of the match performance for Manchester United on the weekend, but his Old Trafford future remains the subject of significant speculation, with Tottenham the latest club to be linked with a move for the young Frenchman. 


The north London side were interested in the then-teenage Martial when he was snapped up for a record fee by United in the summer of 2015, and the ​Mirror claim that Mauricio Pochettino and co. are looking into the possibility of moving for the reportedly unsettled 21-year-old in the summer. 

Spurs have struggled to add a second dimension to their attack over the last 18 months, with top six rivals routinely shutting them down with relative ease, and it's thought that they see Martial as a player who could provide that extra spark to their forward line. 


Jose Mourinho has been publicly critical of Martial at various points over the course of the season, but admitted after United's weekend win over Watford: "The Anthony Martial I want is the Martial of the last two weeks of training. If he trains the way he did in the past two weeks, he performs naturally the way he did today - or better.

"I think he is still missing a bit of his confidence. I kept shouting at him to attack the defender and go to the one-on-one as he needs that confidence but he's working very well. Anthony needs to feel that I am looking at him and that I know what he did in training and the effort he put in. So I gave him his chance and he played well. He had a good game for me."
